I had bought a weekly travel card for the bus and as I was a little lazy for walking around I thought I could do some sightseeing just sitting on the top of the bus. And that's what I did. The bus took me all around Eastbourne through the old city up through little villages and it lasted more then an hour. It was a wonderful sightseeing tour !
Then I sat at the seafront, read my book and watched people going by. There were workers on the burnt casino on the pier, it will be repaired for next year's season.
We went to Hastings for a walk and didn't know that a carnival procession just took place
Lots of floats were passing by
We saw some fancy costumes
This one rather bloody
and lots of marching bands. It was very nice, although rather cold because of a strong wind. At least it didn't rain !
For the last time I took my bus to Eastbourne and arrived in time to listen to an Elvis concert !
The Elvis "copy" wasn't the youngest one neither the girls, but he did an excellent performance and had just the same voice. It was so fun to watch the now old Teenagers dancing in the street, and even those sitting in a wheelchair were swinging ! There also was a market on the street but I didn't see anything interesting. Then I had a little lunch and went to the seafront were I enjoyed the sunshine.
This little card arrived on Saturday from Hilary with whom I met on Wednesday. She saw cats and thought of me. I was really touched.
