Day Out in Brighton

Brighton Pier

Brighton Pier

Tuesday of last week I decided that if it was nice weather at the weekend I would spend the day in Brighton on the Sunday. At the weekend the weather forecast decided it for me, the weather was rapidly deteriorating, thus off down to Brighton I went on Sunday morning.

Walking down to the seafront, my eye was caught by a display outside a shop a couple of minutes from the station. I went over to investigate and was glad I did as I found Grocer and Grain, a delightful food store. I spent about an hour or more there chatting to Hakan.

My plans to walk down to the seafront pleasantly disrupted I walked into North Laine and had an excellent lunch at Iydea, my dessert a blueberry and raspberry cake from Grocer and Grain.

Eventually late afternoon I did manage to get down to the seafront. A crab sandwich from Jack and Linda Mills who I caught as they were closing.

Walking along the seafront I was lucky to pick up from the bookstall by the derelict West Pier two Jamie Oliver cookbooks, Jamie’s Dinners and Jamie’s America. I was tempted by the Paulo Coelho books, but I decided next time as I had too much to carry.

By the time I wandered along Brighton Pier the sun had long gone down and the pier was all but deserted. It was then time to wander back up to the station and go home.

I wish my lovely friend Sian had joined me as she would have enjoyed a day by the seaside. I also missed my lovely Czech friend Iva who I used to meet for a day together in Brighton.
