A Day Out at the Beach

A Day Out at the Beach

Last May, I took a trip to Fleetwood with my sister and my niece.

One day, we went to Lytham St Annes and we walked on the beach. As well as keeping my little 4 year old niece amused, we made it our mission to walk out to the sea.

As we walk away from the promenade, views of the piers and beach huts on either side of us..

We walk along the sandy expanse, relatively empty save for some folks we meet along the way..

The promenade gets smaller..

But, there’s always the zoom for close up views..

Not quite sure what this structure is, maybe some sort of breakwater..

What’s that over there?

Or, hazy views?

We walk for at least 30 minutes and still no sea..

Apparently, the sea here goes out very far and comes in very quickly, so if you plan to walk the sands in Lytham St Annes, you must know the time of the tides.

We gave up in the end, turned around, and walked back towards the promenade.

Even though we didn’t make it to the sea, it was good exercise and we had a lovely time together.

Have you been to Lytham St Annes? What did you do there?

  1. Love the beach huts! Think we only have these in Victoria somewhere, not many in other parts of Oz.
    Saw these in Bude also if my memory serves me well.
    Your niece is so cute. 🙂 x

    1. No, I can’t say I’ve seen any in Oz. Maybe it’s a Brit thing! 😉 Yeah she is, although I’m sure her Mum won’t say that (she can be a little devil) adorable though, but it’s easy for me to say! x

  2. Have indeed been to Lytham – we live the other side of Morecambe Bay, near Carnforth. My brother was even living in Lytham at the time of your visit!
    Great photos Gill!
