Geoffs Life After Work !

Blackpool my Childhood Playground

As an 8 or 9 yr old me and my younger brother Brian used the Beach as our playground with other kids of course,there was no such thing as dangerous people in those PC carefree days,Crabs (tiny ones) and shrimps could easily be caught on the pier legs as well as the odd shrimp, Starfish were also aplenty (altho no sign of them today) Tides come right up to the sea wall to a depth of around 4 feet and as nippers we,d jump off the wall into the sea (of course kids don,t die do they?) and the tides would go out about a mile.Piers provided great metal structures we climb like monkeys on and we could free entangled fishing lines and re sell back to the pier fishermen ! We could roller skate for miles on our tin rattlers on the very even tarmac that span the 3 piers on the Irish Sea.I could write a book on our escapades but haven,t the time.Pictures 3 times on a Saturday were also the go in the good days and I end this Blog saying my misspent youth was of being poor but we had the best times

Blackpool Tower was our backup indoor playground and we made money by carrying holiday makers lugage to their deignated B&Bs  yes indeed Happy Daze!!
