One of the advantages to having a car now is that when Markie picks up Leigh, Ben and Elliott from nursery on a Friday, and the weather is good, he can take the magical mystery back route to Morecambe. This is a pretty clear run (about twenty minutes) to the seaside.
Because it is usually about five thirty when we arrive the front is usually devoid of many people. This means we have the beach pretty much to ourselves, can get a place in the fish bar and grab an ice cream and have a good ninety minutes to two hours of seaside luxury without the press of people and potential for dismay.
It was a particularly lovely Friday evening and we did this, just a fortnight after the last time and once again it was great.
