A Chippy Tea and Long Exposure Beach Photography: A Perfect Friday Night in Cleveleys

Mary's Shell

A chippy tea is a quintessentially British experience, a treat for the senses that brings comfort and joy. We couldn't resist the temptation of the tantalizing aroma of freshly fried fish and perfectly golden chips as we made our way to one of our favorite local spots.

With our warm parcels of fish and chips in hand, wrapped in newspaper just like the good old days, we found a cozy spot along the beach near Marys Shell. The sound of seagulls, crashing waves from the high tide, and laughter from fellow beachgoers filled the air, adding to the enchanting atmosphere. The salty sea stiff breeze added to the charm of this experience, making it all the more special.

As we took photographs and indulged in our chippy tea, we couldn't help but marvel at the perfect blend of tradition and creativity that this Friday night had brought. The classic British comfort food resonated with the nostalgia of simpler times, while our long exposure photography allowed us to capture the passage of time in a unique and artistic way.

The evening went by in a flash, but the memories we made will remain etched in our hearts and camera rolls forever. Cleveleys, with its picturesque beauty and warm community, never fails to inspire us to explore new ways of combining the simple joys of life with our creative passions.

If you ever find yourself in Cleveleys on a Friday night, I highly recommend experiencing the joy of a chippy tea and embracing your creative side with some long exposure beach photography. It's a magical combination that will leave you with a heart full of contentment and a camera filled with captivating memories.
