Down at the Dale Farm travellers' site, the gypsies are looking pretty pleased about their latest injunction...

Caravan Club
That's Amelie organising a sit-down protest of her own on the steps of our caravan before we left Blackpool on Monday morning. She's not technically a gypsy, but she does have a couple of slaves, one of whom was taking the photo. So the similarities are striking. Although obviously with me staying there, it wasn't so much Dale Farm as Chippendale Farm.

Anyhoo, my favourite of all our holiday photos is this one...

You wouldn't believe how hard it was to get back to that girder before the self-timer went off.

I'm joking, of course. I climbed out onto the girder first, and then got someone else to take the photo. Anyway, that was us at the top of Blackpool Tower last Wednesday. Anyone who read the accompanying blog post won't be surprised to learn that they charged us extra for that photo, but I felt it was worth the money as a souvenir. Particularly as I failed to get a photo of Lisa on a donkey. In addition to purchasing that picture in a presentation cardboard frame for the mantelpiece, I also wanted a copy to put somewhere that I'd see it numerous times a day. So I bought it as a fridge magnet.

But as mentioned last Friday, that wasn't the only souvenir photo I bought. We also came home with a beautiful group portrait of us all on the Rugrats Lost River ride at Nickelodeon Land, where we shared a touching moment of family love as we plummeted downhill at high speed in a plastic log...

I think Lisa was on her way to a court appearance.

Oh, is that Lisa behind you in the log?

The photo at the top of the tower makes me feel quite ill!  I don't think I'll be going up there if I visit Blackpool.

And to think Michael Jackson was criticised for merely holding has child over a balcony.
