Unless you’ve been living under a rock you will have noticed that it got a bit hotter. The glory of Brighton is that it has a beach about a 5 minute walk away from work/myhouse/anything else in Brighton (we’re a compact city you know!) So for the last two days after work that is where I’ve been. Give it a few weeks and i’ll be bored of it (well, of the language school students and suchlike that over run in when it gets REALLY warm) but for now, here are some pictures (Olympus e520) from the last couple of days.
This crazy skirted/female swim suited guy came to tell us the sons of Zion were coming, he also talked about genitals.
This dude is renowned for dancing to whatever beat he can find. There was a live band playing, so he was dancing! Funnily enough I went to a photography exhibition celebrating Brighton the next day, he was there AND a picture of him. He talked nonsense at us though so I think his brain is addled.
Sam and his 2 friends swimming out to the farthest buoys… the water was freezing!
And something you didn’t know about me: two years ago I swam all the way round the remains of the west pier. against the tide daftly, it took us forever, I was completely knackered, I cut my foot on a submerged piece of barnacled something or other BUT it remains one of my favourite mini-achievements! Don’t do it kids, the lifeguards frown upon it! I kind of want to do it again this year though…
Nice weekend plans for all I hope, I have been invited to meet Lloyd Grossman at the Foodie Festival on Saturday, which will be amazing. If you’ve got any burning questions for him leave them below as there is Q&A session. Also I found out yesterday that one of Sams friends will be playing on the live music stage too, and one of my bridesmaids Emily is going, with a friend from school, so that all worked out pretty well!
