In one of the tourist books I read this: "In England, you are never more than about 70 miles from the sea". Now, I have no idea if that is strictly correct, nor do I care! All I know is that when we are visiting Eastbourne, we are only about one mile from it!
This ice cream was simply divine...it was "Honeycomb and Caramel", in case you can't see the words! We also had this ice cream at my in-laws - with Richard's birthday cake! (They got theirs from Marks & Spencer...absolutely delicious!)
I read that the Pier will partially reopen this weekend, but it was completely closed while we were there. You can see the burnt out skeleton below...
In the photo above, you might think that those are two roads beside the sea...but they are both walkways, and it extends for miles along the seafront! I think I read that at one time, the upper class walked on the higher level while those in the lower classes walked on that lowest level. (AND further towards the end at Holywell, there are THREE levels!) This used to be called "The Promenade". That word might not be used anymore, it might sound too old fashioned, too Victorian for these modern times. I think we should bring back good words like "promenade"!
Now, these lovely walks are free and available for everyone! And you all know how much we love to walk!
(At this rate, I will finish my England trip for you by about 2017!)
