Morecambe: Blue and white
When summer comes to the UK, you have to visit the coast. On a sunny day recently, I took a train from Manchester to Morecambe, a Lancashire seaside resort.
Have a look at the photographs, then read more below and let me know your impressions of Morecambe.

The town sits on the edge of Morecambe Bay, a sweeping arm of the Irish Sea that stretches to neighbouring Cumbria.
This coastal setting is a pleasure to wander around – even when the sunshine is accompanied by a brisk, chilly breeze! I also explored the town’s West End area, where some of the buildings could use a little tender loving care.
But my favourite piece of architecture by far is the Midland Hotel, an Art Deco gem opened in 1933 and reopened in 2008. Curvy, elegant and whitewashed, it’s hard to ignore.
The standout Midland, along with fluffy clouds peppering a blue sky, seemed to be inescapably attractive that day.
Do you ever come home with a set of photographs where there is a distinct colour scheme?
