Our first summer
Oh we do like to be beside the seaside...
It's been a long, hot (well, ish) summer in the Davies' new city. Six glorious weeks to explore and discover our new home and I have to say, it's been totally brilliant. We've found new beaches, swam in the gloriously temperate English Channel (who knew?) and gone crabbing for hours. We've spent days on the pier shoving tuppences into machines, eating hot, sugary doughnuts and scaring ourselves silly on the rides. We've lived the Brighton dream with a sunset barbie on the beach, been bodyboarding the waves, hung out at a friends beach hut and enjoyed many a cold pint in a beachside bar cranking out great music and cool vibes, in short we've had an awesome summer. The kids go back to school next week and life will get back to normal. The days will soon get shorter and the sea won't be so welcoming, so bring on a Brighton autumn. We're looking forward to it! www.visitbrighton.com
