Well even a cold wet dismal and 6 am welcome to heathrow cannot dampen my enthusiasm ...it's so great to be back in England. Forgot though how gruelling that flight is, I got a reasonable amount of sleep but Kevin got not much. After picking up our hire car - a vauxhill and very nice, we set off for Brighton. Also forgot how mad the drivers are here, 4 lanes of non stop traffic and most of them flying past us as though we are not doing the 70 mph speed limit.
Got to Brighton by 10.30 and met my beautiful niece Mel at the train station. It was so great to see her and she is loving her new life in London. We took a nice drive along the coast heading east, found a pub called The White Horse at Rottingdean for lunch - lovely sea views. We then enjoyed the famous Brighton pier, in very blustery conditions. Everything tells me I am back in England, from the sounds of the gulls and the accents and the picturesque countryside. Wonderful!
By 4pm we are fading fast and leaving Mel back at the train station, head west to find a bed which we do at a sea side place called The Windosr Hotel in Worthing....both crashed early to bed. It was so nice to lay down!
