Yesterday morning when I woke up it was all grey and it rained and so was my mood except that it didn't rain in my brain. But nevertheless we decided to go out somewhere and not sitting at home watching TV.
We went to Hastings (famous for the "Battle of Hastings") and which had been for centuries, an important fishing port although much reduced, it has the largest beach-based fishing fleet in England. Today it is also a nice seaside resort and the city is lovely.
We walked through the city and my friend bought some clothes, I didn't find anything and anyway I have to watch my suitcase !
I had been here already, but it is always nice to see it again.
Just on the rocks over the sea sits this old castle. You can go up there with a lift.
These were old fisher houses, now shops where we bought a very nice ice cream and ate it while looking over the blue sea.
These wooden houses were quiet high and used to hang up the fishermen's nets, so that they could dry. The little house besides the boat was one of where they lived.
It had been a very nice day.
