Hastings

Hello

Thanks for calling in!

We spent Easter in Hastings, on the South East coast, a town which conjures up thoughts of William the Conqueror, 1066 and all that and the Battle, recorded on the Bayeux tapestry, which took place 950 years ago this year. I'm sure there will be all sorts of special commemorations later in the year especially at Battle Abbey a few miles outside Hastings. There is a regular re-enactment in Battle which is very colourful and often muddy.

We didn't see any of that though! We were after some fresh air and thanks to Storm Katie we certainly got plenty of that! Actually despite the wind, we were dry and it was quite sunny. Hurrah!

The sea looked quite different each day.









The beach is covered in shingle which is pulled in and out by the waves making a brilliant rustly noise, maybe thundery even on occasions. There were a couple of brave body boarders in the very choppy water next to the sea wall riding the waves. Brrr!



I'll be back again soon with a few more photos.

Cheerio

  1. How lovely to see the sea. It does look bracing with the wind and the waves. It is ages since we visited Hastings and I seem to remember two parts to the town. I look forward to seeing more:)

    1. I could sit and watch it all day! We found loads of places to see and things to do. You are right there are two parts to the town. :-)
