We are halfway through the half-term holiday already! It has been a lovely week so far. Lots of chilling out, a bit of creativity and a trip to the sea.
It started as a trip to Eastbourne to try to find some glasses that Josh would like enough to wear, yes, at 11 years old he is starting to get incredibly fussy, I think having an older Sister doesn’t help!
After that ordeal we headed for the ‘old fashioned sweet shop’ where out of all these gorgeous colours
Abi and Josh bought themselves some candy floss.
Having said that, I did snaffle a little bit 🙂
After getting a couple of other bits we needed we headed for the beach, this time was quite a contrast to the storms of the previous week.
We sat for a while then Abi and Josh headed down to the sand and enjoyed themselves there
while I took rather a lot of photos!
Oh and I couldn’t leave out these Gull footprints!!
As we headed home Abi decided to take a detour and go up and over Beachy Head and then on to Birling Gap. We saw the old Bell Tout lighthouse
that is once again precariously near the cliff edge after having been moved back some years ago.
We passed some horses grazing on the cliff top
and then reached Birling Gap where we stopped again and Abi and Josh went down to the beach below while I again too photos. There we could see the ‘seven sisters’ to the right
and to the left the old coastguard Cottages that are gradually disappearing into the sea.
If you look at this link you can see when nearly two years ago they had to demolish some of the cottages and to the bottom right of the picture below you can see the remains of these cottages.
The colours were amazing, I love the blues,greys, greens and browns of these photos.
After some time we had to head back home back looking back over the town as we descended.
I love simple unexpected trips like this, it was a day to treasure up in my memory.
Are there simple things that give you a lot of pleasure?
I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week and Happy Crafting!
