Brighton. Hot and sunny. A cool car place.

To make it easier , we took the train to Brighton. It was my first visit there and I was surprised at it’s size and City atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and did what you do at the seaside, excellent cod and chips at a beach cafe then a cooling reak in the Pavillion Gardens on the climb back towards the railway station. Saw this absolutely beautiful VW Microbus on the way. The photos speak for themselves.

Had a close call at lunch with only a slight “wound” from a pooing seagull. If that’s lucky I will eat my hat. Some fanastic artwork for sale along the beach level promenade but way too expensive. We did the 60s type tour of the pier and even had a go on the “Tipping Point” penny falls. Great fun in all honesty.

We loved the cosmopolitan and diverse atmosphere of the people and places. Sadly, a lot of homeless folk in evidence.

On the way back up the hill, we caught an outdoor concert and heard a group of children performing an Indian song.We sat in the shade for an ice cream and chilled water. A very warm day indeed. Suncream much in evidence! Here is Brighton Pavillion. It was much busier than this picture suggests. The lawns were crowded with lovers of all descriptions. A very pleasant vibe on a simply lovely day !

In parts, the shopping area resembles the narrow meandering paths between Cornish fishing village shops, cafes and bars. Busier yes. Would we visit Brighton again? Oh yes, definitely!
