Blackpool

One last return to that coastal town, and the rain drove in from the Irish Sea, the October wind triumphing in gusts. Sheltered within our crawling car, we witnessed the season stamp its seal through a conquering night, barely held at bay by faltering, neon light. The streets were swept clear, the waves threatened to swamp.

We bid our farewell for the year. The dark rejoiced.

  1. Sigh. Some seasonal changes seem more welcome than others. We’ve had rain, rain, rain and dark skies. I’m glad the sun in out today, though the days are shorter now.
