Got up at 11.00
Walked round Ainsdale
Called in on 'J'
Went to town
Went to 'J's from 8.00 - 12.30
Met her boyfriend 'P' = good night got a bit tipsy
As Sam and I strolled around Ainsdale village I thought I would surf the 'net and see what is listed there (apart from 70steen photos of course). In the 2001 census there were just under 13,000 people living there... a bit of a bigger village to when I lived there
The images I have found mostly are soooo uninteresting (note to self next time I am home take the camera!!although the sunsets are something I have not seen whilst I lived there.. I like those & Fred Bates has made an effort )
Old railway station - Ainsdale Beach Station
I still love the sand dunes
My old church - St.Johns
My mate knew the old lady that owned the house at the back of this photo & we would cut through to the village. As a small child it felt like a 'secret garden'. It is now the doctors surgery
Ah the Railway Pub... I spent more time i the Formby Railway becasue my teachers drank in this one.
I moved to Aindsdale in 1965 and the photos that Francis Firth show on his site is how I remember the village.
If you have a spare £500,000 this is what you could buy
And finally ..........as there is not a big surf on Ainsdale beach (you do struggle to see the sea at times) there is a lot of this going on it would seem!
Gosh I wish this had been invented when I was youth would have so joined in, there was always the buggy racing with kites, because it is so flat, but nothing like this... looks great fun
