Neither Chris or I had been to Brighton before so we decided to make the most of our last day off together and visit the beach!
In true British style the weather was a bit odd! I wasn’t sure if I was hot, cold or somewhere in-between. There were points in the day where I was all zipped up shivering and then in complete contrast moments when I was pulling silly faces in a tank top melting!
Regardless, it was lovely to relax on the beach enjoying the sound of the sea caressing the pebbles. It was the first thing we did when we got there, we couldn’t resist. We laid on the beach so we could have a little sleepy snuggle, I know soppy and romantic but I do have a soft side deep down.
After a little snooze on the beach, we decided to explore the pier. The Pier opened in 1899 and is looking rather good considering its old age. There were lots of rides and activities to take part in, as well as food stalls. The most important being the ice cream! Everyone loves a good flake ice cream!
We gobbled down the ice creams and then headed for the 2p machines! I am a sucker for them and we ended up spending ages in there trying to win different prizes! We came away with five and we didn’t spend a fortune.
After fun at the arcades we decided to play some crazy golf. It was great fun and although I started off badly by the end of it I found my swing (pardon the pun).
The most important part of a trip to the beach is of course to indulge in some tasty-tasty fish and chips! We got ours from Fish and Liquor, and they were divine! I would 100% recommend getting your food from there. You can eat in but we wanted to take ours away. It was great to chill in a deck chair with a beautiful view of the sea, summer really is just around the corner!
