It really was another one of those special days on Pleasure Beach. That's 3 years in a row we've met up the Mowbrays now and each one has been superb. Only 7 weeks on Sunday until we do it all again too.

Anyway, here are a few photos that both Lesley and myself took throughout the day.

Emily gets herself in a shocking situation in the Horror Bar  :P


Cramped into a Stobart lorry waiting for the park to open


Me and the kids waiting outside the park


Bikini Bottom Bus Tour


The Streak goes off for testing




From the station of the new look Blue Flyer


A kiss for the most special wee girl in the world


She enjoyed that kiss !  :P


And one in return !


Dave Jnr comes along for his photo too


Rude boy !


Daddy and his "Special Wee Girl" about to ride the Pleasure Beach Express


Random views from the Express






Louise, Bradley, Emily and Dave Jnr meet Spongebob Squarepants




Emily approves !


Dora, Boots and Diego come out to entertain




Lego Spongebob !


View from the Monorail


Streak


Lesley and Emily on Streak


Dave Jnr waiting for the ride


The still under construction but very nice looking Dora's World Voyage


Bikini Bottom Bus Tour again. Dave's favourite ride of the day


Splash Bash


Dave and Emily do the Krusty Krab Order Up


Fairy World Taxi Ride


Last, and very much not least, getting cosy on the Ghost Train with Mr Mowbray. We're just good friends lol !!


Hopefully come July the weather will be a bit kinder and it will be something of a photo fest !

Thanks for the kind comments folks. We actually didn't even have a camera on us over the weekend. All of our photos were taken on the Nokia N8. I've managed to talk Lesley into getting one too as they are just superb for catching quick pictures.

Will have the camera back with us in July though, when you should look out for another report on Mr Mowbray doing the South Pier SkyCoaster  :thumbup:

That Skycoaster report from you guys was brilliant. I'm sure you will do it again Peter - you just need enough 'Dutch courage' from the Laughing Donkey again!!!!  ;)  :thumbup:
