My five year wedding anniversary is coming up in a couple of days. I was lucky enough to honeymoon in England and spend some time with my aunts, uncles and my Grandma MacDonald. My husband and I went on a short journey or two with my Grandma while we were there, who was 92 years old at the time. She always asked me for years whether or not I had a steady boyfriend, so I was happy she was able to meet my husband. On our way to Blackpool, we drove by the house where my great-grandmother (her mother) last resided and where my grandmother used to go dancing on the weekends when she was younger. Thanks to a good recommendation, we stopped at Whelan’s Fish Restaurant
in Lytham where we had the best fish and chips I’ve ever had. On the wall was a picture of Gordon Ramsey in the restaurant with the owner. I remember sitting across the table from Grandma who was thoroughly pleased with the quality of the meal. “Ooh, I do love a good fish and chip,” she said. Although, she passed away in 2009
, I am so grateful for the chance to see her again and to have a good fish and chip together.
I have never since eaten fish as good as Whelan’s, but this is pretty tasty.
