Brighton

57 Comments


I've lived in and out of Brighton for over two years now & I can just about count how many times I've visited the famous pier... on two fingers.

The first time was when I was a little girl.
My childhood best friend & her mother, who I still consider my second mother to this day, took as on all the rides, to the arcade and after that she let us run around in our underwear by the sea. Cutest pictures ever may I add.

The second time was in 2014.
During my first year of university my housemate and I decided we'd take a walk by the beach to recover from our end of exam celebration.
This seemed lovely and all until a seagull kindly did its business on my brand new hat. 
To this day I've had a little thing against those gulls.
To add to that, we managed to forget that we lived on the top of what seemed like the steepest hill in Brighton. 
Let's just say she had to carry me home that afternoon. 

^ blast to the past March 2014.
I still live with her to this day and as it's my final year here we're trying to make the most of our time together. 
So on a not so glorious afternoon we dusted our boots and headed to the place where it all began. 
Odd socks and all!
The sounds of gusting winds and chiming birds fill the air; really making the pier a good de-stress mechanism. 
Although it could also be your worst nightmare.
^ Seems like seagulls love to photobomb me.
For most visitors the pier is also an excellent place for photography, family fun or even a romantic stroll.
 For me personally, it was the perfect time to let loose.
There are so many things you can do here. For example, you can act like a statue.

You can observe the galaxies through a telescope.
But not just any old telescope oh no.
This one talks to you.
So that means you can make friends!
You can act like an infant.
You can even pretend to be a model. The list is endless!
But don't pretend for too long. You're guaranteed a slip up or twelve!

Before I knew it, I suddenly spotted a swarm of birds flying by which looked like they were having a party.
Imagine how much havoc all those birds would cause if they ended up in your room. *SQUAAUUUUUKK SQUAAUUUUUUKK*.
This made me cry with laughter.
Housemate was very confused at this point.
Oh well at least I had my scarf to wipe away the tears.

Before you leave you mustn't forget to get some rock candy & say goodbye to the jelly baby.
& don't be shy to pucker up!

I'm certainly going to miss Brighton when I leave.

Rock on! (Geddit?)

  14. My mom is from England and she talks about Brighton beach all the time. She hasn't been back in about 45 years so I imagine it's changed.

  46. You are ADORABLE. And ahh, Brighton. I've only been there once and only for a day, but I visited the pier... since it was super close to my B&B, naturally. I loved it there. I'm not really in it for the attractions/amusement park stuff, but the seaside and the West Pier ruins which of course I photographed for ages... mm good times.
