We decided to go and look at the Blackpool Illuminations again tonight, as they finish next weekend – big mistake!!!! When we went last time it took us about an hour to drive the four or five miles along the sea-front. Tonight, leaving at eight o'clock, with four tired children at the outset, it took almost four hours ...

It was hideous :-/

Mind you, the two who were still awake at the end of it seemed to enjoy it so I guess it was worthwhile.

Anyway, I realise this isn't a great photograph – by any stretch of the imagination – but I'm putting it up a) to remind me of what they look like should the urge to go and see them ever come over me in the future, and b) because I have nothing else to put up. I did take some more shots this evening but I'm too tired to look at them. And, in case you're interested, this is one of the large tableaux at the Northern end of the Illuminations and is probably about 20, or maybe 25 feet long.
