Ah!! Sea air!

Who needs St Tropez? A pleasant twenty two degrees in sunny Eastbourne will do from me. I was quite taken with a little twenty foot boat called Ella. Would be fun for chugging down the river, or dropping anchor out at sea on a summer's afternoon! We made do with a cup of coffee and a stroll round the marina instead.

I've walked Archie along the beach and I swear I was more excited than he was! He obviously takes it for granted, living by the sea, 'yeah yeah, pebbles, I've eaten a few in my time, they're a bit salty, I've gone off them.'

There's no place like home! I actually yelled 'HASTINGS!' when I saw the first sign post for my home town. Woohoo! Welcome to 1066 country! Why thank you. The Battle of Hastings didn't even take place in Hastings. It was fought at Senlac Hill in Battle. Battle is where we are off to today. For a stroll, a coffee, a peek in the little yarn shop...just a peek.

Hastings is the birthplace of the television though...

Oh yes. John Logie Baird has a lot to answer for.


  1. Oh, how lovely! My in laws live in Eastbourne! I know just where you took this photo!! I hope you made it to the Pier and walked along the seafront!
    If not, perhaps you did the same at Hastings!

  2. There's nothing like a bit of sea air! Hope you had a lovely time!
