A beach day in winter!?

Today, Freddie and I took a road trip over to a place called Lytham, which is on the west coast of Lancashire. Whilst the weather was windy and rather cold, the sun was still shining and we had a lovely afternoon walking along the sea front - It was a bit of a change from our usual haunt of St.Annes located about five minutes away, which has a pier and more of an old school sixties 'holiday destination' vibe. 

This year I decided that I would explore the west coast a little more and try to find different beaches or sea fronts that are less populated. Today only made me want to explore the coast further, so if any of you readers have a favourite place to visit in Lancashire, do let me know! I am praying that we get a repeat of last years glorious summer so that I can use my hidden beach findings to their full potential!

Lytham boasts a brilliant stretch of grass that runs parallel to the sea front - a handy alternative to sand, especially on such a windy day! We also found a few daisy's - even though it is the middle of winter, which Freddie enjoyed picking and handing out to everyone!





We wandered over the grass to the huge old windmill, that is sadly no longer in use but utterly beautiful. The contrast of the white against the green grass was stunning.




As it was almost lunch time and the sea air was making us rather hungry, we made our way into the centre of Lytham and of course found ourselves a chip shop because what else can you eat when beside the sea!? It was absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend! 







After having a little stroll through the town centre - that was full of lovely little interior and boutique shops, we made our way back to the car along the sea front capturing a couple of precious moments!





Freddie loves going to the seaside and I would one day love to have a home that overlooked the water, it'd be so amazing to set out of your door straight on to the beach - insanely jealous if any of you currently live with that luxury! 

I do hope you're enjoying these little adventure posts, I certainly enjoy writing about them and sharing them with you - I do have to apologise for the poor quality photos however - I completely forgot to charge my camera and so I had to make do with my iPhone *must be more organised*
