We arrived in the evening, and after some refreshments, we went for a walk along the front, it was dark so not a great deal to see, though Lelani did find a friend.
The following day we did meet up with Eric Morecambe and his birds!
The statue was created and cast by Graham Ibbeson and stands on the Promenade as a tribute to the town’s most famous son. It was unveiled by the Queen in 1999.
Eric was also a keen ornithologist, and around the statue and along the front you can find many statues of Turns and seagulls...
We did have coffee and cake ( or in my case tea), but we had those at Antonia's house, and I forgot to take pictures .. silly me!!
It was a lovely day and I got a lovely picture of the bay
We have talked about going up again as soon as possible and to especially go and have cocktails and maybe even a spa day at The Midlands Hotel, which is a stunning Art Deco hotel, that has recently been restored to it original grandeur.
