SUMMER STOCK SUNDAY - Eastbourne holidays
more participants here at Robin's Around the Island
Just before I left I decided to spend the whole day at the beach of Eastbourne. I had never done that because we always went elsewhere. But this day my friends had other things to do and so I walked along this beautiful seafront
On the left side is the street for cars, in the middle this colorful flower bed all along the seafront and to the right a nice way to walk.
I went to the Pier, all in white and blue
Made sure to follow this advice
From the Pier looking to the left side I had this view
and to the right side these beautiful old Victorian style buildings, which btw are all along the seafront.
I sat on one of these banks and did a little sun bath with the result that I had a red face in the evening but fortunately it turned into brown the next day.
after an hour I walked slowly back. There are lots of little souvenir shops, but also others, restaurants, bars a gambling place (under the round dome) and dancing places
and also a place where leisure fishermen try their luck. I didn't bring any, one fisherman catched an old piece of fabric not even in fish shape.
Then I had a sandwich sitting on the beach and watched the seagulls and people. It was a very nice day.
