Thought I was going to have to miss out on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week as I couldn’t find anything in the archives which I could even pretend was a Fountain.
Then Hey Presto, today we drove to the nearby seaside town of St Annes to see if there would be any donkey rides on the beach for my cousin’s 3-year old when they visit us on Monday. I couldn’t believe my luck when we parked on the promenade road right beside this fine example of a Victorian Fountain. I’ve seen it loads of times before, but never looking as nice as it did today (Well, there was water in it which was a first! and a blue sky behind it).

Beautiful fountain with your signature touch of red.

Thanks Charles. Luckily I had my can of red spray paint with me.

How dare you! (Did you sign your work in some mysterious way?)

Aye, the base of the fountain wasn’t red at all ! LOL

That’s a lovely fountain. Is this the St Anne’s that used to be called Lytham St Anne’s? We lived very close to there when I was aged 2-4, at a RAF base. I have very vague memories of the donkeys!

Thanks Georgie. Yes there’s a genteel little town called Lytham and a quite separate (and nice) town of St Annes. For “holiday resort ” purposes and local government admin both small towns are lumped together as Lytham St Annes. For locals, however, especially those in Lytham, they are definitely NOT one place.
