EASTBOURNE HOLIDAYS DAY 2

This morning when I woke up and opened the curtains, I saw some blue sky ! What a delight after this horrible weather yesterday !



After breakfast I went out and took  this picture of my hotel. It's located just at the seafront.



The breakfast and dining room and also a piano in a corner. Here I sit with my little computer and write.



I crossed the street






sat on a bench and had this gorgeous peaceful view. I stayed there enjoying the sunshine and watched the people walking by. Everybody is so friendly, although I didn't know these people they all said a good morning to me.



The little train ran already from one beach end to the other.

At 11 am Doug picked me up and we went to friends of him and Anne living in Worthing an hour and something driving. They had invited me as they do each year. It was so nice to see them.



They live in a cute old cottage and at the entrance I saw this sign, which would fit on our house too !



They have a very friendly white German shepherd called Lilli. Another couple arrived and we all walked together down to the beach.



We had a delicious lunch in this Pub



and I of course had my traditional fish and chips ! After an ice cream we returned and had coffee at Moggie's house. We spent a very  nice afternoon all together and left at around 6 pm.

I couldn't eat any supper I was still so full from lunch ! So Doug and I went into a Pub in Eastbourne and had a last drink together. Then he dropped me off at my hotel.

The air of the sea makes me tired and went to bed very early !

Glad the weather improved. Your hotel looks neat. The beach with pebbles always surprises me as we only have sandy beaches. You had a nice day with friends. Thats good. I have the same sign stuck on my fridge.

Eastbourne does not bring me happy memories, only time I went there with Mum & Dad I was sick. Looks a nice place apart from that stony beach
