All on a Saturday Morning – in Eastbourne

There is never a dull moment when you are lucky enough to live by the sea.

First job of the day as was a visit to our very friendly and helpful fresh fishmonger down on the beach for something tasty to have for supper. After much deliberation, we settled for a couple of skate wings, but were sorely tempted by the fresh lobster being prepared. In fact, it was hard to choose as there were some local plaice, dabs and crab amongst the impressive display. Service with a smile and a hint or two on the best way to cook your purchases, no wonder this place is so busy and popular.

Wow what a dress!

Then it was a stroll into town for a little Saturday morning window shopping, this rather amazing creation caught my eye in a charity shop – but would I ever have the chance to wear it…?




I called into my favourite Greek restaurant in Terminus Road,  ‘gr/eat’, to make a booking for a family dinner. If you like Greek food you won’t find better – homemade Moussaka and a whole selection of traditional baklava are just a couple of favourites – delicious.



Princes Park


The sun was shining and a salty wind was blowing so I carried onto the prom and took myself along to Princes Park. Gay Pride were setting up for a day of fun and jollity – I should have bought the dress! But I settled for a coffee and scone in the newly renovated Boathouse Café. A great little spot overlooking the boating lake and extremely well decorated and very welcoming.  Princes Park has certainly been spruced up and is now a pretty area of colourful flowerbeds,  open lawns, an extensive children’s playground, a meandering stream complete with swans, and a lake offering a selection of boating activities.

I could have sat in the park and watched the world go by for the rest of the day, but some dark clouds rolled in over the downs and weekend chores beckoned at home. I will return another day.
