Last day-Birling Gap & Eastbourne

On our very last day the sun was shining and by 9am we were in the playground where, for a solid half an hour all my children played together! Twas lovely :D
Afterwards we walked along the seafront and found lots of crab/lobster/fish remains all along the pebbles?!? Some of the pincers were HUGE!! Then the children all had ice cream-yes at 10am!-never too early apparently!! Then we drove over to National Trusts Birling Gap. I've drove past several times in the past but never gone-kicking myself now as its SPECTACULAR!! Amazing views, rockpools, white cliffs, blue sea and charcoal coloured shingle. Was such a wonderful morning. We sat and had lunch and I had a fantastic cup of tea from the cafe, much needed. Then we had an hour to poke around in the rock pools looking for crabs and anything else we could find! We even found foam-which the children said was pollution! How clever they are! I spent ages staring at the cliff edge as it was so enchanting and intricate. Then we headed back to the car to pick hubby up from work and drive 255 miles back home. We've had such a fantastic few days!
