It's Monday and the weekend over. I bought a weekly bus ticket to be more independent, as my hosts have also other things to do as driving me around. The ticket was rather cheap because one return ticket is very expensive, it would only make 3 rides for the same amount. Now I can travel as much as I want to all little towns around Eastbourne or along the sea.
This was my first stroll along the seafront. It was quiet cloudy, but the sun came through and although it was only 17°C (63 F), in the sun it was nice and I could sit there after having made a tour on the Pier
It is beautiful and built in Victorian style. As I almost blow away because it was very windy on the Pier I just made a tour, took some pictures and went down to the beach.
There I sat in the sun and watched the seagulls fighting for food or sitting on the tables and checking the plates. One decorated the head of a soldier. They made quiet a lot of noise and once I thought it was a woman laughing but it was a seagull !
The good sea air made me hungry and I had a cheese and pesto toast with a cup of tea at this lovely place.
The seafront is very beautiful with all these flowers, palm trees and the old Victorian houses.
The beach was rather empty because it was too cold. Later a few courageous people came with beach beds to lay down.
I just loved to watch the sea and the people walking by
I sat besides two old ladies who talked about their funerals. They wanted to be incinerated and were asking themselves what to do with their ashes. I listened but refrained from giving any suggestions ! I am sure the seagulls would find a solution ...
The flowers behind me were beautiful
I could think that I was at the French Riviera. I even got a little sunburn, because I hadn't thought to put some suncream on my face !
The afternoon concert started at 3 pm and I saw the musician preparing their instruments.
On my way to the bus station to return home, I saw this shop "Cats Protection" of course I went inside to buy something, but unfortunately there was nothing.
I returned home without any problems and even found the right stop to get out ! Miracles happen.
