CoLJ 5 - Brighton to Eastbourne.

Monday was a day for being a holiday tourist. Starting with a brief visit to see nearby Brighton seafront we then drove along the coast road to Eastbourne, the older persons capital city, where we sat on the beach in the Sovereign Harbour area, along with other older, presumably retired couples, and ate our lunch. I kept my eye open for the Age UK representative in case we were approached for a 'Pay as you Laze' ticket or a signed donation direct debit mandate.

Seven Sisters

In the afternoon we headed back across the South Downs to the cottage via Birling Gap and Alfriston. We stopped at the Birling Gap to view the Seven Sisters white cliffs. If truth be known, actually the main reason was to buy an ice cream at the café there. However we very nearly didn't stop because the National Trust, who own the land here, wanted us to pay to park the car to buy our tub from them! An alternative parking space was found and a toffee and hazelnut ice cream tub was devoured sitting on the cliff top before continuing our tour.
