Sea Life


We had a bonus day of sunshine on the coast here in Brighton - but it all turned to rain on Monday :(

These are the "sails" at the entrance to the sea life centre.

Hotel Du Vin


One of Brighton's swankiest hotels and restaurants is the Hotel Du Vin. It's that special occassion kind of place where service is excellent and nothing is too much trouble.

Anyone for a swim?


This is our glorious pier taken from a slightly different angle - quite often there's divers under the pier (probably collecting all the dropped coins from the penny arcade!)

BikeSafe


I had a fantastic day out with the Police Riders of East Sussex, part of an initiative called BikeSafe you get the opportunity to brush up on you riding skills with a theory based morning and a practical (biking in the sunshine around Sussex) in the afternoon - would highly recommend it if you're on two wheels and the skills learned might keep you biking longer!

Fancy a pint?


When the summer's here I change my drink of choice to Cider.

The cloudier the better!

Millions of pounds of unused equipment


It always amazes me just how much money is sitting in Brighton marina with so much of it being unused - I know it's weather dependent but I'm fascinated by just how little use these boats get.

Brighton festival


Brighton Festival is now in full swing with venues all across the City hosting weird and wonderful acts, experiences and performances.

One of the venues is the whacking great big upside down purple cow on the Steine - this venue is called Udderbelly.

Sunny morning


Festival photos to follow this week (thanks Iggy) but thought I'd share our sunny morning with you today. Feels like we've turned a corner and that Summer's on its way.

Welcome back


I'm afraid i've been kidnapped by the real world recently and my digital life has been on a bit of a pause. However - I'm back (yet another false dawn?).

I'm off walking on the South Downs this weekend so there should be plenty of photo opportunities - which I'll post after the weekend.

This shot was taken in the sunshine of the Royal Pavillion Gardens - there's a chap doing Tai Chi in the foreground and plenty of folks enjoying the sun!
