Brighton… a lovely ghost town..

Where do Londoners go when they want to take a break from the metropolitan life? Brighton is the answer, this lovely city on the south coast of England, just one hour away from London…

Last August, I was still living and working in London, and on our day off (it was kind of miracle that we both had the same day off) me and one of my best friends Ewa decided to go to Brighton.. The weather in London wasn’t too bad and the forecast was saying that in Brighton it would have been ok…

We decided to meet at 10.30 at King’s Cross but since none of us used to be punctual we met around past 11, I got there some time before so I had time to get two chocolate torsades from Dรฉlices de France (give it a try if you are in London and you feel like eating something, I saw the store just in the stations though, so I don’t know where else you can find it, but they have good stuff!!) and two orange juices… We jumped on the train and we had breakfast even though it was almost midday…

After about one hour we finally arrived to Brighton, it was a bit misty but nothing to be worried about, we stopped in the supermarket close to the station to get food again (yes we keep eating when we are together ๐Ÿ™‚ ) and then straight to the beach…. We were there to relax after all…

Everything seemed nice and quiet and then all of a sudden, the houses behind the beach disappeared, but believe me, it took less than one minute, they were completely covered by the fog…

Anyway, nobody cared and since the view of the sea was still enjoyable we didn’t care either…

After a while though we were cold since we haven’t been moving for couple of hours, so we decided to take a walk along the seashore, where we bumped into the Brighton Fishing Museum..

a thoughtful woman who captured my attention because she seemed so absorbed into her thougths that she wasn’t noticing anything of what was going on around her…

a merry-go-round..

…and a wooden path of which you couldn’t see the end (I love this pic)…

We were kind of bored, so to avoid eating again (yeah, we thought about it) we went on one of those open buses to take a tour of the city, now that was a bad decision, lol, it was freeziiiiing!! But we laughed so much! When we got off, one hour laters, we couldn’t feel our hands and ears and nose and everything exposed ๐Ÿ˜› We needed some warm place and maybe warm food… and what do you eat in a typical British day? Fish and chips with mashed peas of course… hmmm a bit too oily but sooo nice!!

In the meanwhile the fog came down even on the sea… and the result was that the pier was completely plunged into the fog… It seemed like a ghost town…

After taking some pics on the pier we were cold and it was late afternoon so we went all the way back to the station, on a warm train where we both felt asleep…
