MORECAMBE. Sitting & Watching the Bay.

Sometimes there’s nothing better than just sitting and watching the world go by, or in this case the Bay. A photo from four or so years ago, it had been one of those October days that surprises you with its warmth and a champagne sparkle of sunshine.

Sometimes I catch the Merseyrail train from the sub surface platform at Lime Street, other times I make my way through the city to James Street station down near the Pier Head. A bit of mix and matching, traveller’s variety etc. This time […]
