As dearest hubby was working most of the time whilst we were in Sussex we tried to make the most of the day on Sunday and went for a trip into Brighton. The sight of the pavilion never fails to impress we! I can only imagine the reaction of it being built at the time and how out of place it must have felt. Still, if I was ever going to build myself a party palace I might take some tips from this architect! Here are the children with their flat traveller William (who has been to many more interesting places around the UK then I actually had planned for!) outside the pavilion.
After the hustle and bustle (and violinists balancing on rope's outside restaurants-yes really!) we headed to Beachy Head. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Lighthouse (and windmills too!) but have never managed to see this one for some reason. A few years ago I had a very foggy drive up here with the kids and had no idea how close we were to the edge of the cliffs, gulp..., cliffs really frighten me, especially with the kids running around but I really wanted to walk further up to see the lighthouse and also take a picture of William on the cliffs for when he goes home.
The girls take a moment to show the barbie's the views
They looked to have quite a time too! I think Beach Barbie was being a little optimistic wearing her hot pink bikini though, it would be a little cold for sea-swimming I think........
