On Monday, Claire had the day off work and I'd made up my mind that it was the day we'd go to Eastbourne. We have lived in East Grinstead for just over 18 years, Eastbourne is about an hours drive from home and yet we've never been there before. So, Monday was the day. I wasn't sure what to expect but, have to admit, I really liked it. There is an old charm about Eastbourne, I'm not good at describing it but it felt comfortable, relaxed and friendly. We parked on the seafront and walked up towards the pier.
If you look carefully at the above photo, you'll see there's a little white train coming along the road towards us. I haven't actually looked up to see where it goes or what it does but I certainly hadn't expected a road train to be one of the first things we saw ;o) The pier as we were walking towards it.

Looking back the way we'd come
From the pier we followed the signs to the town centre, did some shopping and had lunch at Prezzo (2 for 1 offer = always a good thing!) before making our way back towards the front again.

This seagull was quite happy on the lamp post for some time
Walking back towards the car
And finally, the sea!
A fun girly day out and one more place to tick off my list of places to go to. Not sure if I'll fit any more in before Emily goes back to school a week tomorrow. The holidays have gone by so quickly, can't believe it's nearly time for back to school already!
Off now for tea and cake with my niece Theresa who is celebrating her birthday today. Happy Birthday Theresa!!
