Tag and Photographs

Hi All from a beautiful sunny day at the NE UK Coast. Thank you for dropping by today.

At Tag Tuesday we have Animals as the theme for the next two week. It was chosen by Michele and she has also teamed with Karen at Lunagirl to give a prize to one lucky winner chosen randomly.

Today I made a digital tag with brushes I added to Paint Shop Pro.. Hope you will join us with an animal tag or more than one if you feel inclined. We would love to see what you make.

More Southport photographs today.




Difficult to know where to start but as Southport is famous for the amazing Lord Street, that stretches for about a mile and has the most incredible gardens and shops, I thought I would start there. It is said that Napoleon got the ideas for the Paris boulevards when in 1846 he was lodging in on Lord Street. 

Lord Street has so many shops you think they are never coming to an end if you walk along them. The best thing is to walk on the opposite side of the road and look up at the amazing building. So much history and beauty to see at that level.










I'll just fit in a few more as Southport is also famous for its wonderful flower show each year in the beautiful Victoria Park










Hope you enjoyed Southport-still more to come but different.

Do join us at Try it on Tuesday as well for Feathered Friends we love to see you there.


Have a great day

Love Chrissie xx

Gorgeous tag and love the wonderful photos. Southport looks really good, and a lot smarter than I remember back in the 60s/70s. Glad you had such a nice time there. Hugs, Valerie

I always love it when you share a digital tag from brushes you have made. Your digital skills amaze me.

But truthfully, the incredible photos from Southport steal the show today. The shops are out of this world, and there are lots of famous names in one building. It was an incredible trip you took us on, and shared with us. So delighted you took me to a place I will more than likely never get to visit.

Thanks for sharing the photos, what a wonderful place to visit, seems it's 5 hours from us, perhaps one day. I would love it.

Such elegant giraffes... and such elegance in Southport too. I don't know what I had in my head for Southport, but it certainly wasn't that - it looks like a wonderful place to visit.
