Rainy Blackpool

Big steps forward today as I managed to get a trainer on my foot for the first time since I broke my ankle.
We went into Blackpool for some bits & pieces & I bought a pair of wedge shoes for the wedding. I did think about buying some silver trainers or similar to wear with a long dress But now I have the option of choosing long or short. They aren't too high & have adjustable strap at the back so can wear loser on my left foot.

A rather wet miserable Blackpool with the Winter Gardens in the background.

Three good things:
1. A change of scene & streets to walk in.
2. M&S stir fry for our evening meal.
3. So glad to see my chair when I got home, I was worn out & ready for a sit down.
looks unusually deserted, glad you got sorted but flats may have been better? !!! I have been in flats for years because of my back, but glad to do so :)

Looks like Top Shop is closed, never bought from them because they had a warning speaker as I approached, "Fat women approaching". Doors always shut in front of me. Glad you are getting out and about.

Looks like a great street to explore.

Yes - you can tell that it is raining but the rain makes everything glisten!
Looks like a great place to window-shop.
So happy that you are getting out and about - take it easy though - don't want to do more damage now!

Lovely photo even in the rain but so good to hear you are on the move again.

Looks cold as well as wet! Hope it improves by the time we arrive! I heard Britain was going to have a hot summer! Take it easy with your outings - at our age if we don't use it we lose it!

Love the rainy day character/feel in this shot, Pat. So good that you found workable shoes for your upcoming event. Who knew the trials and tribulations that would befall you on that fateful day with your rush down the stairs to greet your new camera. 🙁

I like the fancy paving and cobbles. It looks very smart. Glad you got out and about a bit today.

It looks a wet and dreary day in Blackpool. So glad you have managed to get some shoes for the wedding. Silver trainers sound like a great Plan B though.

Suprise to see it looking so wet! I've forgotten what weather in May in UK can be like! Enjoy shoe shopping!
