Blackpool rock(s)

We went, we saw, we conquered! It really only took a day. Advice to anyone thinking of going: just take a day, and try and make it a sunny day or you truly will be out of your mind with the what the hell is this place type situation.

In the one day that we did Blackpool, we...

Started the day with a tram ride to take us to the Tower, which wasn't really that impressive and cost £10 to get in!
We went to the Winter Gardens cos it was free, and shelter away from the WINDY day:
We went to Madame Tussauds and ooh-ed and ahh-ed over how real everyone looked!

We ate icecream, played mini golf, and won some tat:

We went for yucky fish and chips in Harry Ramsdens. Seriously, never go there, barf. Very expensive and utter rubbish. 

I put my foot to the test and walked from the Tower to the casino which was well over a mile. It was worth the walk as we won £40! We cashed out when the going was good and have brought it home to put in our holiday cookie jar for our big holiday in September. 

Most of all though we embraced the cheese, cringed at the sights (and I don't mean the Tower, the Winter Gardens etc), and had a mighty fine time! Blackpool, it ain't all that bad...
...well, bad-ish!
