Sunday

Eastbourne Pier

For the past two days, weather was perfect and High Street was full of enthusiastic shoppers dressed in cool summer wears. Yesterday, I just planned to go down to the market to grab a couple of sundry items, but ended up with shopping for whole day with my friends. And, trust me I did not buy any junk, so I congratulated myself for that and bought myself a large pack of salted popcorn:)


Well, this sunny climate prompted me to write a long pending post on Eastbourne Pier, which is situated on a romantic pebbled beach



On that day, wind was chilly and strong and the pier bridge felt a bit shaky but we went to the extreme end of the pier where there was fishing club...



I was reminded of the lone fishing "experts" who hang on forever on top of the bridges and by the ditches in Malaysia! But, this place is a far cry from all those places. Here, I guess you should be daring enough to brave the strong winds and get down to the fishing area...in fact there was a sign board that prohibited spectators beyond that area and as usual I wanted to go beyond that point, but the minute I peeped in, I lost my guts, see it for yourself...



Then I just started to take pictures of the shore from there...



It was lovely to watch the birds soaring up and down to catch fish and at the same time see the sweeping shore. The place was perfect for...umm so many things, I meant only writing and thinking! :)


As you exit the pier, I caught this breathtaking view of the roadside, dotted with beautiful white buildings and flowerbeds.



As we were walking by the beach side, we caught site of a class diner at a Fish and Chips outlet and without getting noticed I managed to take video...
