Postcard of my photos from a hike around Eastbourne and Beachy Head in Sussex

Eastbourne this last weekend was as pleasant as always, in many ways it's the ideal south coast seaside resort, favourable climate and bucket and spade-fulls of Edwardian nostalgia and architecture.

The night out with the GBMCC bike club boyz was fun but the change to summer time made it a short sleep. I went for a hike up Beachy Head (162m altitude) to enjoy the views back over Eastbourne and to Boulogne in France far away in the murky haze over the Channel.

Since then, the pier was damaged by a fire but it looks as though it may be rebuilt.
