John and I went on a mini holiday to Eastbourne in Sussex over the weekend. It was amazing! Eastbourne is under two hours drive from where we live, but it felt like we were in different country. It reminded us of France and of Belgium. They even had a Continental Market where you could buy food from all over Europe. We enjoyed Provence style pasta, German Frankfruter hot dogs, carrot cake, apple strudel, doughnuts, viennese fingers and churos over the course of the weekend. I think we were the pastry stallholder’s best clients – we went back three times! I thought of it as carbo loading for next Sunday’s walk 😉
Best of all, John found us a fabulous hotel right on the beach. It was truely an amazing weekend away (without the long drive, airport security or foreign languages) and just what we needed. It’s amazing what a difference it makes to a day at the beach, knowing that you won’t have to drive home that evening. Saturday felt soooo long and Sunday morning, after enjoying a super breakfast at the hotel, we were out in the morning sunshine by 10:30. (I just looooove hotel breakfast! Even the toast tastes better.)
On Sunday I even did some crocheting in the shade under the Bandstand.
If you live in the UK, I hope you enjoyed the sunshine. Did you see the weather forecast for this weekend? It looks like the sunshine is here to stay! Yeah!!!!

Hi I live in Bexhill, just along the coast from Eastbourne and work in London. I think I have the best of both worlds. Weekends by the seaside without packing. Standing on the station during the week smelling the ozone and lots of time on the train everyday to do lots of knitting/crochet
Oh wow, you certainly do have it good!
Natasja, I have been there myself and it is wonderful! My sister in law is from Hailsham, East Sussex, another beautiful, quaint town.
Thanks for sharing as it brings that lovely trip to mind!
I’ve put Hailsham on my list of towns to explore when next in Sussex!
very nice 🙂
Looks totally ideal. Love your nails.
Aaah thanks. I painted it to match the sky. As you do. 😉
