We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started, And know the place for the first time. ~T.S. Eliot Four Quartets

Routine is settling back in now that the half-term school break is over, but the weekend was an unexpected surprise.

While visiting the grandparents in Preston, we drove out to Lytham-St.Annes, along the coast of the Irish Sea.

Lytham and St.Annes are two adjoining towns, very near to Blackpool, but more subdued, and in my opinion, more pleasant. On the waterfront we found the Victorian St.Anne's Pier, overlooking the sea.. the front portion has been converted into a games/rides area for kids, while you can walk out onto the open pier at the back. Unfortunately the old tea rooms on the pier are closed and have not been refurbished. Looking out from the main pier, you can see the remains of where the original pier once extended to-- prior to a fire that destroyed a good portion of it.

The promenade, while full of things for the kids to do, was not overwhelming and forgetting myself, I even enjoyed a bit of trampolining (but you won't be seeing a photo of that).
