Formby - the last stop

A little jewel on the North West coast is Formby and after leaving Manchester we headed west to stay for a couple of nights at the world famous Formby Point Caravan Park. The site is a little oasis surrounded as it is by sand dunes and pine woods. But best of all is the fact that it is only a short car ride away from Annita and her family and Ian and his daughters.
Lesley travelled over with us from Manchester and we all had a smashing time with Annita and John especially as Ian offered to drive us over to Liverpool. Needless to say my sister laid on a lovely meal for us all and it was great to catch up with everyone again.

On the Monday Dave and I borrowed Ian's car and drove into Southport and despite the sky being overcast the weather was warm enough for us to enjoy our breakfast in the park on Lord's Street. In the afternoon Helen came over to the campsite to see us and we had a great time catching up with all her wedding plans for next year.

It was strange walking though the pine woods without the dogs but we had a very relaxing walk trying to spot the illusive red squirrels.
