Sailing, Seaside and the Lake Country: This is England.

Blow the man down!

 

 

Arthur Ransome and Oscar Wilde had a love of sailing and the sea.

Here are related photos of Glasson Dock, Coniston Lake and Morecambe, the latter related to next week’s post.

Their kite fest, as you see from the pics is amazing!

It was great being able to write something about my home town as a guest blogger!

Here are the reasons you should come to Morecambe – and yes the author links are there including a celebrity!

The response to my post has been wonderful so it may as well be included here!

Thanks so much Mr Mohamad Al Karbi and to Morecambe Tourist Service for the pics!

All the best

Boats in Glasson Dock

Glasson Dock is the perfect place for tourists with a true Ransome-esque flavour!

The magnificent marina and fine boats takes your breath away!

It is the perfect place to go on a bright winter day as I did and really lifts the spirits!

This village with a rich history going back to the eighteenth century is clean, small and quaint with some great places to eat or buy food, notably the Dalton Arms and the Smokehouse.

For Arthur Ransome fans who want the A R experience there are also some walks along the canal in which to enjoy and savour the wildlife of Lancashire!

A January Joy!
