EASTBOURNE HOLIDAYS DAY 3
I was quiet happy when I saw the result of the pictures I had taken during the Olympic Opening !
I had a very good place, close to the Queen and ...
Mr. Bean ! Laying comfortably on the couch !
Today we went to the seafront in Eastbourne.
The weather was nice, despite the fact that the weatherman had announced showers !
At the seafront the Lammas Festival took place. This word comes from the old English for Loaf Mass" a celebration of the Earth's bounty which was traditionally held at the time of the cutting of the first corn crop.
There were lots of peoples dressed in costumes
even belly dancing
Lots of games and music bands, people were picnicking on the grass and everybody had a lot of fun. I suddenly felt that I HAD to have a good portion of chips and bought me some. It was part of the festivities.
My friend Anne while waiting for her husband Doug, replaced him with this cute partner !
Then we left the place, which sometimes makes me think of a Southern country because of the palm trees and did our shopping for supper at Tesco's.
