EASTBOURNE SEAFRONT

I am actually in Eastbourne on holidays.



After some heavy showers it cleared up and I went to the seafront. Nothing had changed since last year, the pier still stretching far into the sea and the seagulls meeting on the beach.

and from the seafront on the Pier. There was a group of Chinese students who spend some weeks in Eastbourne to learn English.

I sat in the sun and read my book and watched people walking by. There were lots of tourists who had the same idea.



When I was hungry I went to the little restaurant on the beach and had a Cornish pasty and a cup of tea
This young seagull watched me hoping for some crumps. Seagull babies are often bigger then their mothers and are not completely white.

Perhaps that young seagull was one of those thousands trying to catch flying ants in yesterday's post! You should have asked. ;)

Oh holiday! I'm jealous :-) What sounds really fun to is sitting in the sun with a book.

Eastbourne is quite unknown to me, but it looks to be a terrific place to visit.

Hi Gattina - it was not the best day yesterday ... but great shots you've taken of the seafront .. bearing in mind the grey skies.

Let's hope it improves .. though the clouds are taking their time to move away ...

Enjoy today and see you tomorrow - cheers Hilary

I'm glad the storms passed over quickly and you were able to relax on the beach.

When I look at the buildings on the coast I remember a little Nice! And why? Because at the XIX e century, rich english jet set wanted the same at the french Riviera!!!

Hi Gattina - these photos might some of the last ones of the pier, before it went up in smoke yesterday afternoon .. very sad.

At least only one third has been lost ... and I hope it can be rescued and repaired ready for next year ...

Yesterday was fun .. cheers Hilary
