So this weekend was a surprise for my birthday and what a fantastic surprise it was! My birthday isn't until the 11th but due to a Hen Do and my hubby having to go to Japan for work, this weekend was my treat.

I didn't know where we were going until we pretty much got there.....Eastbourne. I adore the sea, it is in the top 5 favourite things for me so to then find out that the hotel we were staying in was on the seafront and our room looked straight onto the beach, I actually had a little tear out of happiness!

This is the hotel we stayed in and we'd thoroughly recommend it! http://www.cavendishhotel.co.uk/index.htm

We spent a lazy day on the beach, wandering along the pier, having an afternoon tea with scones and clotted cream, watching Eastbourne's Jubilee Parade from our balcony, followed by a gorgeous Italian meal in the evening and the drizzle didn't stop us enjoying ourselves.

I can't wait to go back there, such a laid back, chilled and happy place and we'll take away happy memories from there too :)
sounds as if you had a great time - lovely capture of textures and tones here

@johnnyfrs Back in not so coastal Milton Keynes now, but had a fantastic time. I thought of you when I saw the sea and how much I've been jealous of your weekends by the sea :)
