I spent a few days over Easter with my mum and her family in Sussex. I stayed in Seaford with my cousin, aunt and uncle, while mum stayed with her sister in Hailsham. My mums siblings are all in their mid-late 80's and my uncle is 90. Sadly over the past few months we've travelled down for funerals so I thought it would be nice for mum to spend time with her siblings on happier occasions.
Whilst the trip was family based, I did manage to spend 2 days out on my own, catching the bus first into Brighton and a second day in Eastbourne.
We spent a lot of time as children in the holiday times in Brighton and Peter and I have taken the kids camping in Sussex a couple of times, visiting the Eastbourne airshow and exploring the English Heritage sights. Whilst a lot has changed over the years, the Palace Pier still remains although the West Pier has since burnt down.
I spent some time wandering the lanes, took a walk on the beach, played the 2p slots on the Pier, enjoyed fish and chips and visited the Worlds Oldest Sealife Centre.
What a lovely break, I haven't been to Brighton for many years. I did go to Sussex University for a while and used to catch the bus to Brighton.ReplyDelete
I do love being by the seaDelete
It sounds like you had a great time. I never knew that Brighton houses the world's oldest sealife center.ReplyDelete
it is a lovely old buildingDelete
Oh, visiting from #PoCoLo.ReplyDelete
I love Brighton and Hove! Like you, I enjoy being by the sea and there is always so much to see and do there. I love the mix of people too. We've considered moving to the part of the coast but property is ridiculously expensive in the area.ReplyDelete
