Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Outing to Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Last day of school

No teachers fuss

Fun on the bus

 

Fish and chips to eat at lunchtime

Ice cream Keylime

Sunburn Sunshine

Northern coastline

 

Children riding on the big one

All fears are gone

End of school year

Sharing good cheer.

The challenge at d’Verse tonight was to produce something called a minute…it had various rules…this is a light-hearted effort to attempt to meet them…incidentally today was the school trip to BLACKPOOL Pleasure beach, another northern gem…an amusement park if you are not familiar with Blackpool.

Summer sunset at Heysham

Window frames sweated

in the sticky heat of late summer’s evening.

Bats darted through the boughs of silhouetted trees.

The sky was bloodshot and the glassy surface of the sea

reflected the haze of a lazy Sunday.

Stars peppered the night sky like grape-shot.

The challenge for d’Verse  #35 this evening was to create a quadrille containing the word pepper to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Sgt Pepper…

So this is my offering.

The images were from last night’s sunset as viewed from the upstairs of the house.
