Since we are about to celebrate Christmas in July, at least it feels that way (there is cherry blossom tree blooming here in London!), I thought it was appropriate to share some photos of my day at the beach... on November 1st...
Apparently, I knew very little about London before I arrived here, because I certainly didn't know, that the beach was totally within a day trip reach! So when they announced 15 °C for Sunday, November 1st, I spontaneoulsy took the train to Brighton!
We started in London in fog so thick that you couldn't see anything, but by the time I arrived in Brighton, the sky was as blue as it possibly could be!
Bathrooms are kind of quirky in Brighton...
Hungry from walking along the pebble beach, I decided to go for High Tea at the Blackbird Tea Room. The food was as delicious as it looks, but for one person, it was almost too much! (not pictured is the scone that was also part of the high tea...)
With my belly filled to the max, I headed back to the beach where I took an afternoon nap. It was so warm that i was only wearing a t-shirt! Then, I walked past the Grand Budapest Hotel, some quirky modernist architecture, the burned down old pier before I headed back to the train station to catch the train to London!
