Sunday trip to Brighton

Brighton seafront

Second Sunday in November, as with first Sunday in November and the Sunday before that, nightmare of rail works.

No information at stations.

At Gatwick, very cold, but luckily not so at Brighton.

Windy down at the seafront, but not cold.

Not many people about.

Excellent lunch at Iydea.

Popped into Resident. Picked up Asperities by Julia Kent, a mistake not to have picked up previous week. I would have liked her previous album too, but not in stock.   Released last week and album of the week in Resident.

Last Sunday in North Laine in Brighton, I picked up Divers on a whim from Resident. I regret I did not pick up Asperities.

Resident, an indie record shop shop in North Laine literally doubled in size the previous  weekend.

Resident has expanded, now double its previous size. It is good to see an indie record shop doing well, but then Resident is one of the best in the country. I never understood why the passing of HMV was mourned, as it was a terrible record shop, and its demise, gave a breathing space for indie record shops like Resident.

Back to sea front. Missed the sunset, but lovely red sky.

Wander back to North Laine via Brighton Pavilion

Coffee and cake at Pelicano Coffee and Tea House.

Wander back down to sea front. Now dark, a gale blowing, and yet up from the sea front not even windy.

Brighton Pier

Brighton Pier

A walk along the Pier. More or less everything on the Pier closed, the end in darkness and blocked off.

Catch a train an hour later than I had originally intended.

At Gatwck, no rail works, but relief short-lived, train cancelled. Wait for next one in an hour’s time. Man on platform says catch train to Redhill, pick up train there. Blatant liar there was no train.
