How beautiful is this?

I was just trying to find a way to Beachy Head and it looked like Eastbourne was an easy target as far as signposts pointing me in the right direction. Then it was just down the road to Beachy Head.
I meant to turn off somewhere driving in to the, it must be said, unattractive entrance to Eastbourne but somehow I missed it and ended up along the ever-so-pretty beachfront. Well, except for the rocky beach which was the first of many I was to see. Coming from a country where you wouldn't walk across the road to a pebble beach perhaps my vision was somewhat coloured.
At least Eastbourne has done something with their foreshore and I give them full marks for that.

    What lovely gardens, and the Cliff's look fantastic! I found it very interesting reading about the Pier, it has had quite a traumatic life!
