We are quite fortunate with the weather at the moment, so I thought a day out to the seaside is well overdue, and a trip to the city of Brighton was just what I needed. It’s a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with always something happening, it’s also fairly busy especially at this time of the year. So I hopped on to a bus, as I don’t drive into the city now, it’s too damn expensive to park and public transport is easier.
I always head straight to the beach, usually, the West Pier is my first port of call as there is generally something of interest to photograph, and sure enough, there was.
Here in the UK, we have been having a mini heatwave, well temperatures in the upper 20’s for a few days. So I thought it would be a good time to visit my nearest city Brighton, on the Sussex coast and have a wander along the seafront.
The first place I like to visit when I go to Brighton is the West Pier, it is now slowly crumbling into the sea, after every storm you see another section missing.
I had planned to do this walk for some time so packed the camera bag and set off, however when I arrived it was just starting to rain only light to start with, but was getting heavier and heavier, so I abandoned and planned to return when it was a better day, that day arrived so I set off again.
The good thing about driving to Seaford is that parking along the seafront is free, yes free in this day and age, would you believe it. I parked at the far end nearest the cliffs and ascended the hill by the golf course. The view was spectacular looking back towards the town with Newhaven harbour in the distance.
