Diary Friday 5th May 2017 A visit to the community centre today where weekly events co-ordinator Verity ran a quiz involving photos and text questions on famous people and places. It was great fun and the questions were often quite hard, but each of the four teams won some cake, donuts, etc. and many more were given to us for free too, and I was even given two fresh bloomer loafs of bread. Diary Saturday 6th May 2017 As the weather was nice and I had nothing planned I decided to go out on a pub sign trek. Having covered all the pubs within immediate local bus range I got a cheap day ticket for a Lancashire county wide bus service and headed out to the coastal regions of Lytham and St Anne’s to get pub signs and other images there. I got a few on the Preston border regions too. I loved the freedom of the walk, and saw many awesome sights, including this seahorse mosaic at St Anne’s. I had some of my bread for lunch.

Enjoy and have fun. I have not been to pubs, so I don't know much about them.

@teamfreak16 still doing the signs though I have a potential to get some published work from that at present so posting them here would currently slow that down

@responsiveme mostly I get the pictures first though sometimes I get information on a pub history even before I find the signs

Searching for a pub walking in a nice weather will be quite thrilling. Do you know how one feels if gets one good pub after doing a lot of walking? Sometimes, if we do not get into a good one then there will be problem Going with friends will be very joyful.

Do most pubs have the same sort of set up inside?

The seahorse mosaic is beautiful. Great idea to move to another are to take more photos of pub signs.
