Travel Diary - Day 5 - BRIGHTON

Day 5 of our journey took us on a long drive to Brighton.a seaside town in the south east of England. I had high hopes for this pebble lined shore but was sadly disappointed. The seaside terraces that lined the coast were beautiful and I can imagine would of been simply gorgeous in their hey day but I was not expecting the tacky, generic and gaudy games, pokies and sad looking faces that greeted us at the pier. Brighton Pier has SO much potential but sadly has been used as a money making venture for lonely hearts. I hope that once upon a time the pier was filled with elegant flapper dressed ladies, suit clad gentlemen and beautiful old Rolls Royce'. The picture did however turn out beautifully, I was thankful for the gloomy weather.
