I do like to be beside the seaside

On Monday I had a marvellous day out at the seaside with some other twitter knitters at Eastbourne and Beachy Head.

It was very easy to get around with a great bus service. 13x runs hourly and stops off at points all the way from Eastbourne to Brighton. The timetable is here. There's another more frequent service, the 12x which you can look up on the same website, though this doesn't get you as close to the sea.

We had ice cream, a pub lunch, walked up and down rolling cliffs, scared ourselves with the huge drop (x1.5 the height of St Paul's cathedral) down to the sea and poked about in rock pools. Sadly the shops were closed by the time we got back to Eastbourne so we didn't get any rock but it was a fab day out with fantastic weather and scenery. I could go on and on but instead I'll show you my photos...
