Jun 6, 2017 - En suite

I just had to add this!!! Our room at the guest house last night was quite big with a huge bed, but when you open the "en suite" door you have to laugh! Sitting on the toilet was interesting - you had to sit sideways or the basin was in your face. By far the smallest we've had this trip. We're now in a hotel in Southall not far from Heathrow Airport - it's all Indians, just like Luton.

Jun 5, 2017 - Another interesting day

The submarine was another very interesting tour at Portsmouth naval museum they've done an absolutely fantastic job, and the tours are run by volunteers- ex navy, so they know what they're talking about. The Isle of Wight ferry departs from nearby quite frequently We would have gone across on it today if we hadn't gone back to the museum. We don't have enough time to go now as we fly out on Wednesday. My how time flies when you're having fun! We're now at Eastbourne for the night - the sand is a tad course here We walked along the sea...

Sep 17, 2016 - Beachy Head, Seven Sisters, & Eastbourne

Mercifully, you are in for a short update today. Your adulations and tidings of thanks can take the form of undying praise that I do this. Since I had so little sleep last night, my energy level was quite low. In spite of that I undertook to explore Beachy Head just outside of Eastbourne. This is the highest chalk cliff in Britain, rising to 162 meters (or 531 feet). This apparently also makes it one of England's most notorious suicide spots, although I can't fathom throwing myself off a cliff. No way, no how!! The height notwithstanding...

Sep 16, 2016 - Eastbourne 1

It's about 0230ish here. I am awake at such an ungodly hour because I had a total systems failure of my computer last evening. The damn thing would not turn on, and this be a symptom of some ongoing problem I've experienced since I began this trip where the main screen keeps "popping up" in a random but persistent fashion. For instance, in the short amount of time it took me to type this, the bloody thing popped up 3 times!! Obviously, I have to take this back when I get home and see what the problem may be. So, if all of a sudden you see...

Aug 30, 2014 - safely back home in Eastbourne

We arrived back safely in Eastbourne on the 28th August after the quickest journey back from Brighton that we have ever had. It took us just over 2.5 hrs, probably due to the good wind behind us and not too much of a chop at Beechy Head but we think "Aventura "was also in a hurry to get home. It was so nice to see Eastbourne Pier even if she has suffered damage due to the recent fire and when we pulled in to our familiar berth we were greeted by several neighbouring boats and friends as we tied up and even the sun shone for us. It's very...

Jul 28, 2013 - Eastbourne, Gatwick and Home

It’s been a busy few days but now we’re home! Funny how it is that, no matter how wonderful a vacation/trip, there always comes a point when the mind and body says “it’s time to go home”. Bruce reached that point just a day or two before his ride ended, and I got there just a few days ago. I think it was Brighton that did it for me. We hadn’t meant to go there because we were actually heading for Eastbourne to visit my old army buddy for a couple of nights (we were stationed in Singapore together and have stayed in touch ever since). One...

Jan 9, 2011 - Eastbourne - Sussex coast

Well, here we are, our last night of the trip (apart from the journey home that is). From Peterborough yesterday we traveled south to Eastbourne, Sussex (http://www.visiteastbourne.com/). If I waxed lyrical about the hotel in Peterborough, then we really struck gold with the hotel in Eastbourne, The Cavendish Hotel (http://www.cavendishhotel.co.uk/). It really is a grand hotel. The decor and furnishings are indicative of the 1920's or 30's. The service is spot on from the moment you check in to when you relax in the bar with a drink. The...

Sep 18, 2010 - Eastbourne, Sussex

Trip to Eastbourne and Meeting Mark’s Family. This morning, Mark and Alan go to pick up our rental Ford after we had a sit-down cup of coffee, like a family – not something we get to do often with the work that twins take. I am so impressed Mark can easily adapt to driving on the opposite side of the road, as is his habit. We leave midmorning for the trip to Eastbourne, a Victorian seaside resort area, where Ian and Barbara live – nephew Sean and his wife Dea have come down for the day, from Carpenders Park, 20 miles north of London to see...

Oct 29, 2008 - The M25 - a very large Parking Lot!

Back to Eastbourne and what a drive! About 350kms and it takes me 6 hours. Why? Because the bloody M25 is a parking lot. I am amazed that England hasn't sunk under the weight of the cars on the road!!!! So a couple of day left in Limeylan before heading to India. Whats a word that describes: apprehension, worried, concerned, excited - yahder-yar!

Oct 23, 2008 - Onto see my Sis and Bruv

Its good to see Barbara and Iain. We do a walk the next day along the prom in the sunshine AND its clean, no a speck of garbage on the prom or the sidewalks. My nephew and his wife come down for the weekend and we have a lovely day and then we watched a soccer game but Chelsea lost to Liverpool so we are all sad.
