Brighton

Where’s your favourite #British seaside town?

 

I can smell the sea air as we get out of the car.  It’s hot for October in #Brighton, so we leave our coats and walk into the #town.  A colourful array of people pass by, proving joyfully that this place is still as #diverse and #vibrant as I remember.  I look at all the stacked flats as we walk to the seafront, the architecture here being so majestic and strangely higgledy-piggledy that it’s fascinating.

 

The smell of chips when we get to the sea front is divine.  Like a child I move towards the lights and noise of the pier, trying not to look at the water below me.  As we enter I spy an elderly couple sitting on a bench with their hands clasped tightly in each other.  They are looking out to sea and as I pass with my own partner they smile at us kindly.  I smile back and step quickly around a skateboarder whizzing past at high speed.

 

We stop by a railing and look out.  The blue of the sky matches the sea so well they blend together meaning the horizon is broken only with tiny boats.  I tilt my face to the sun thinking lazily about lunch and how good it feels to be #alive.
