From the outside it didn't look that nice, but the inside was really very beautiful and cozy.
The buffet was unbelievable, such a choice ! These are only the starters I forgot to take pictures of the main courses and the dessert ! We really enjoyed our meal and now we know that this is a place to come back !
2. On the 21st we had our National Day and of course it was very much celebrated !
Nicole and I walked through the park, there also was a flea market and then when we wanted to listen to the band playing songs from the 60th, we had to leave because poor Charlie thought the drums were a thunderstorm and he is so afraid of it. When he started to shiver like a leave in the wind, we left !
There were also a "Kids city" with even little ponies and horses to ride around
3. We also visited the Lego exhibition which had been created for the bicentenary of the Waterloo battle.
It was just amazing ! More than two years of work, no less than 5000 hours of design and installation, and over 1,000,000 Legos !
4. I absolutely wanted to see the Sunflower labyrinth in Mons (Belgium) which had been created in honor of the painter Vincent van Gogh, who had lived here in his early years. Mons is the European city of culture this year.
It was really very impressive. 11.500 sunflowers had been used to build this labyrinth just in front of the City hall. I climbed up on the scaffold to see the it from above ! The entrance was free and there were a lot of people from all corners of Europe.
5. I had to think about my suitcase, as I go on holidays tomorrow. It took me some time to sort out all the battery chargers, for each device another one, mobile, Kindle, camera, computer, and the USB keys etc. That took most of my time, because clothes I just throw in the suitcase. As long as they are all clean, it's quickly done !
I will be in Eastbourne as I do each year since 2007, but this time I will stay in a hotel at the seafront, because it is impossible for me to stay at my friends' house, as Anne my friend passed away not even two months ago. I would see her in all rooms and that would be too sad. On the other hand I love Eastbourne and I will try to make the best out of my stay.
