Morecambe is a seaside town on the north west coast of England. The weather was so clear yesterday that I could see it from my side (north) of the bay, and Blackpool Tower further along. Fifteen miles away as the crow flies but 50 miles, without wings, to travel by land round the bay. I suppose the 1950s were the last of the mass holidays to British seaside towns. In the 1960s the population became more affluent, package holidays arrived and people discovered you could guarantee sunny weeks abroad. Despite its decline I always have a soft spot for Morecambe or maybe it is a memory of the giant ice creams they used to sell there. Brucciani's Ice Cream Parlour in Morecambe have been selling ice cream for nearly 100 years, maybe that is where this idea came from
