Three Short Breaks

I’ve been posting up pictures from the various places I’ve been since I’ve had my camera, but I’ve been on quite a few short breaks too, where I didn’t do a whole lot, and that don’t really merit their own photos post. So here’s three in one.

First off, a trip to the Peak District. We climbed Mam Tor, some photos I took while doing that:

We stayed in the village of Bradwell, so here that is.

Now on to the Southport break. We were on the outskirts, near a beach cars could drive on. Here’s the beach and some random building I found interesting.

And we went into Southport proper. It’s got the proper seaside town look, it’s full of interesting and grand looking buildings, which I loved.

I really want to go back to Southport. It was beautiful.

Last break. My mother did the Great North Run last year, so we all went with her. We stayed overnight in Richmond, another town filled with interesting buildings. Here’s Richmond.

I wish I’d gone into the castle. I wished I had from the instant it was too late. I have no idea why I didn’t.

Anyway, we went to have a look at the Angel of the North. That kind of made up for me missing my opportunity with the castle. I wish I’d done both though.

There are better pictures of it in the world, but I had fun.

As always, thanks for looking.
