Virginia and I had a long weekend in Eastbourne. This resort on Britain's south coast seems to be a favourite resort for the elderly judging by the numbers sitting in hotel balconies. The pier was a little rundown but had a shop making and selling glass ornaments, I got Virginia a small glass elephant.
Got caught out by the rain several times. Enjoyed a museum of shops of yesteryear as well as the Science Park at the old Herstmonceux Observatory. Some marvellous machines to play with.

Eastbourne is not pier-less
