Beachy Head is the highest chalk cliff in Britain, rising 531 feet above sea level. Rising to the west of Eastbourne, it is a place of great natural beauty. Sadly it is also one of the top suicide spots in the country. The land abruptly just ends, and while there are fences in some spots, the majority of it is just open, so you really need to take great care not to go too close to the edge.
It is a great place to meet up with friends and when we were there in September, we did just that!
Okay, here is a photo of Richard with his old friends, Dave and Henry. (I mean his mates from way back, not meaning that they are old, heaven forbid!)
I know what you are thinking..."Kay, please don't tell me that you only just met Dave's girlfriend, Sandra and you made her link arms with you and kick up your legs as if you were the Rockettes in New York City?" Well, of course, doesn't everyone?
That's Sarah on the right, she knows me already, she does not look surprised, does she?
Thanks, Sandra, for being a good sport!
(Poor gal, this reminds me of the photo of me with the dog that I had on C's birthday post, remember that one? Where the dog looks like he can't wait to get away from me? Ha!)
See the little speck out on the water? Let's get a bit closer....
Hope you enjoyed Beachy Head! We like to walk up to Beachy Head when we can. We didn't this past time because our time was limited, but we did the last time we were there. Can you see the seafront there with the pier in the distance? That's Eastbourne!
Keep walking, folks! It's easy, just put one foot in front of the other!
Dave & Sandra, Henry and Sarah...Cheers to you, see you next time!
