My flight went very smoothly, there was very little turbulence . A charming English lady and her husband were sitting beside me who had been married for 48 years! Regardless of the two days of running around like a mad woman before my departure, I was unable to sleep, so once I landed Mark and I went for a lovely breakfast in Lewes at Bill’s http://www.billsproducestore.co.uk/default.asp (it was a nice sunny day so we sat on the patio) and then I came home to sleep.
The next day Mark gave me a little driving tour around Eastbourne and then we headed to Beachy Head. It was so very beautiful there — the white cliffs, the sea, a lighthouse… Don’t take my word for it, have a look:
This is Mark by the way:
I saw some poppy flowers, I’m quite certain I’ve never seen any growing in the wild before, they were so very vibrant! And of course, there were other beautiful flowers and cute insects.
I have taken so many nice photos that I think I will create a Flicker account; I’ll let you know once it’s up!
I really like Eastbourne, it’s a pretty, quiet spot. Mark’s flat is great too! We can walk pretty much everywhere, which is great for me! Here is the view from his windows:
Tomorrow we are off to explore Pevensey Castle: http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/server/show/nav.14191 as well as Battle Abbey: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_Abbey! Looking forward to it!
