Southport in photographs
8th July 2014
Last Monday, Tyrone and I took the Merseyrail into Southport. It was a pleasant journey along the coast, and it gave us some inspiration for other places we could visit along that particular route.
Southport is an old fashioned British seaside town, although there appears to be a lot of modern architecture popping up all over the place. It is home to the second longest pier in the British Isles, which we decided to walk to the end of to sit and eat our picnic. I was a little disappointed that the pier didn’t reach the sea. In fact, the sea was miles out. It’s not really the type of beach resort where you can go and dip your toes in the sea.
We enjoyed a trip to the arcade, and a pink and white Mr Whippy style ice-cream (we’re big kids at heart), before taking a wonder through the shops in the town. We found an antique shop that was like an Aladdin’s cave and seemed to go on forever. I ended up purchasing some comics (for shoe making), and resisted adding to my vinyl record collection.
