Southport is supposedly by the sea...and so it is, once the tide comes in. Southport itself is charming and we found lots of interesting shops and things to see. The biggest surprise was the weather...such a beautiful day. So yes, a few hours well spent.
Lunch first at the Prince of Wales.
It was quite a spread.
Waiting for the loo.
Pretty spectacular in its day...all original features.
I guess the tide is out.
At the end of the second longest pier in England.
Some fellow workers.
The sea is out there somewhere. This is at the END of the pier which is over a mile long.
Grant helping out some tourists.
We never did get to paddle in the sea.
Nancy and George.
Some of the original ironwork was spectacular.
Didn't really have time to scratch the surface. We quite liked that little tree with all love hearts hanging with pens dangling for people to write their love notes. They even made provision for 10' tall people :)
