Having been accustomed to holidays on the beach which usually require wellies, coats and scarves, it was a pleasant change to be able to breathe in the salty air and hear the clash of pebble against pebble in the sunshine. Even my nose turned a delicate shade of puce.
Brighton is not a place for sandcastles as it's a beach of pebbles but there is a pier with various rides or there's beach volleyball, basketball, paddling pools, children's playground, sailing, watersports and swimming in the sea. Lifeguards patrol sections of the beach. Or you can mooch up and down the promenade or enjoy a seat by the sea to watch the world go by.
At present they are building the i360 tower near the burnt shell of the old west pier. Eventually there will be a viewing platform at 138m on the 162m tower but now enormous cranes are busily moving the structure into place.
The other benefit of being sea side is the range of fresh fish and chips available. So crispy. Yum!!
Back soon with a few more Brighton photos.
Thanks for visiting.
