It's Five on Friday time! Thanks to Amy for the link-up.
I've been in Hastings over Easter so here are five things related to this coastal town.
One - Fish and Chips
There was an abundance of fish and chips available, freshly caught by local fishermen - the fish that is, not the chips. Plenty of seagulls were hoping for a sneaky fish when no one was watching. Hastings has the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Britain.
Two - Cliffs
There are two cliffs which you can either walk up or take the funicular railways, much more fun! On the top of the West Cliff you'll find the remains of a Castle and on the East Cliff is a Country Park. Needless to say there are spectacular views over the Old Town and the sea.
Three - Flowers
Bluebells were out here and there, which is about a month earlier than usual. The magnolias looked fantastic next to the blue sky.
Four - Houses
The Old Town has all sorts of different shaped and coloured houses squished in the valleys and perched all the way up the hills. I'll put a few more photos on soon.
Do you recognise the house below? DCS Christopher Foyle from the charming TV series Foyle's War lived here. In fact Hastings itself plays a big part in the series.
Five - Easter Procession
On Good Friday we were startled by a lot of shouting in the Old Town while we were exploring and turned to see a large crowd moving up the High Street. As it reached us we could see it was an Easter procession with Jesus carrying the Cross being roughly treated by the Guard. It looked very realistic and troubling. They proceeded up the hill to the Crucifiction as we went down.
Thanks for joining me today. Have a good week.
