I got to spend my birthday in a static caravan between Arnside and Silverdale this weekend. If you're not familiar with this neck of the woods, I'd recommend investigating. It's also described as South Lakes, Arnside being in Cumbria and Silverdale in Lancashire, even though you can walk between them. The whole area is absolutely beautiful, nestled on the coastline of Morecambe Bay and without the hoards of tourists that often frequent the Lake District proper. Some special friends have a static caravan in the family and they are kind enough to share their good fortune with us, so this is the third birthday I've enjoyed there. Ironic really as birthdays are about celebrating time passing and the inevitability of change, whereas 'static' suggests quite the opposite.
