Oh I do love to be beside the seaside!

I popped into Southport with my cousins today. Southport is one of the seaside towns I visit regularly when in Lancashire (my Grandma has her hair cut there and I go for a little explore).

We admired the seafront entertainment – elderly couples dancing in pairs to a cheery man singing 1950’s ballroom hits – before heading straight for a shopping arcade with beautiful, traditional wooden shop fronts. My favourite find was a shop called Vintage Home. It was crammed floor to ceiling with retro things for your home; crockery from Orla Kiely and Emma Bridgewater, one-off pieces of 1950’s furniture and old games and used books. I picked up this lovely enamel coffee pot to go with my ever-expanding Orla Kiely cup collection.

According to my cousins, a trip to Southport is not complete unless you’ve had a game of crazy golf, so we walked along the pier to a great little crazy golf course before following the bumpy coastal roads home.
