Cafe culture in the Northwest

Think of cafe culture and I rather suspect that Bury will not be the first town to spring to mind. However, Mrs Tree and I went there for a visit to the East Lancashire Railway earlier today and missed the train we had planned to catch. So a brief excursion into the town centre brought us to @utomatic, a restaurant on the main street. As it was a sunny day we took coffee outside and very continental it felt. Espresso, decaf cappucino and the service all recommended. A great day to watch the world go by.

Later in the day we went for a meal with our friends and on the way back stopped by the coastal erosion at Blundellsands between Liverpool and Formby to witness this scene.
