Seaside Tours- Part Three

So you have had Part One and Two, now for Part Three.
For our third and final seaside visit for the week Sebastian and I hopped on the train to Brighton. A seaside city to top all seaside towns.
As soon as we got there we stopped for tea. We had got there so early that the shops hadn't even started opening yet! We sat at the wooden tables outside a vegan cafe and watched the trendy hipsters and art students stroll by with places to be.
We had a browse along the north laines and dipped in and out of boutiques, card shops and eateries.
We had to stop for gelato at Gelato Gusto after admiring the flavour selection. The fact I had never had Gelato before either made me crave it so much. They had such a variety of delicious flavours too- Blueberry, pistachio, brown bread!
I chose Watermelon because... well... it's watermelon!!! It was extremely good.
 
We went on to have a little nose around Snoopers Paradise- the giant vintage Treasure Trove! After looking through the boxes of old photographs, checking all the vintage china orphaned plates for some specials and being goofy in the photobooth we decided to have a little stroll along the beach.
Brighton is quite a special place for Sebastian. He went to music college after school and lived his late teens there. The crucial coming of age stage of his life. He has a huge soft spot for dear old Brighton. We sat on the beach for an hour or so just watching everyone, throwing pebbles in each others shoes- don't ask!?! and goofed around in front of his new fish eye lens- not the most attractive attachment for his camera!
After a lovely evening on the beach, a good mooch around the shops and a delicious meal at gbk we decided to go home and watch a film.
Having all these adventures at various seaside towns has made me realise that I would love to get a lovely little house by the sea. It is such a nice atmosphere, it's very community based and gosh I do love the sea breeze. Obviously being close to an ice cream stall or two is a mega bonus!
I just know I have an exciting future ahead of me.
Oh I do like to be beside the seaside... do you?

  8. Love your photos :) A different take on Brighton, which in a way isn't surprising as no matter how many times I go back, there's always something new to discover :)
