Day 2 of the holiday was shopping day! We got the brilliant tram down to the Tower, where Paddy got another selfie done. It was so hot, up around 25 degrees and I was melting as we sat and enjoyed the scenery for a bit before heading to HMV and Waterstones. HMV had a great DVD sale so of course we over-indulged and bought a pile. My dad grabbed some horror and martial arts while I grabbed a mixed bunch which I'll show at the end of this post. Here are a few more Tower pics.
I just love Blackpool Tower! You can go to the top and get a great view of the whole coast or visit the attractions inside. We've been in dozens of times so I didn't bother this time. Maybe next year. We had a nose round a few other shops before getting a few photos on the sea front, looking towards Central Pier with the big wheel, and then North Pier.
We got the tram back up to Waterloo Road where the good markets start so my dad can add to his T-Shirt collection. The stuff you get here is great quality but cheaper to buy here. And I finally found some T-Shirts in my bigger size for the first time in years! Shopping was fun today! Then it was a tram back down two stops with all the bags to have a rest.
Ok, time to discuss the shopping! These are the DVDs I bought at 5 for £20 plus a few extras.... Bargains!
A nice days work eh? Photos of the great T-Shirts on next post!
