In our quest to see more of England, we headed to Brighton on Sunday with our friends Derek and Leah. Brighton is a large town on the coast that is famous for its beach, piers and and nightlife. We thought going to the beach in August was a good idea. We also thought wearing shorts to the beach was a good idea. We were wrong. We froze. I even brought a sweater and still froze. It was chilly and really windy all day especially closer to the beach.

Cold aside, we had a great time! We walked the shopping area and had a great lunch of freshly caught seafood before heading down to walk along the beach. In true English fashion we would walk the beach a little and stop at a pub, walk a little more and stop at another pub. Lots of things are right on the beach and the pubs with outdoor seating had heat lamps you could sit under and keep warm!

Pictures from the day!


Royal Pavillions


When they say fresh seafood- they mean FRESH seafood. This was Mike’s; mine was filleted.


Overlooking the pier.


Beach pub!


We went to put our legs in the ocean because we can’t help it!


Never seen anything like this and had to share. No, we did not partake.


The next Karate Kid!


Something tells me that the lifeguard is not looking forward to his services being needed.




It was a great day and I think I would like to go back during the evening. They have lots and lots of live music venues that looked like fun and it would be nice to see the beach when the sun is out!

    Can you please tell us just exactly what the life guard was guarding???

    What do lifeguards always guard? People in the ocean. Believe it or not there were some idiots swimming and para sailing in the icy water!!

    Did you buy any jewelry? It just seems appropriate to buy jewelry in a place called “Brighton”! 🙂

    Mike is a great adventure eater. I admire his courage. First snails, now this. No wonder he looks thinner in every picture!

    Mike ate all of his fish and enjoyed it. It wasn’t the taste it was the fact that the fish was looking up at you that gave me the creeps. That and all the tiny fish bones!
