For day 27 of #blogjune we go to Brighton
We had originally planned to stay at Virginia Woolf’s garden studio as a base for exploring the area around Brighton, which we had to cancel, but we did still have a day at the seaside by taking the Southern Railway train down to the coast – sustained with a picnic of drinks and sandwiches from the Marks and Spencer food store at Victoria station.
It was cold and gloomy as we left London, but the weather improved with sunshine and bright blue skies. I think I even returned to London a little red from the sun.
After a walk along the pier we headed back into town to the Clifton district where we met Wayne’s friend Lorraine Bowen.
Lorraine is a music teacher, singer and cabaret performer who became famous through being a contestant on Britain’s Got Talent singing the Crumble Song, and being sent through to the semi-final by David Walliams.
Lorraine was lovely and so generous with her time and took us on a tour of parts of Brighton we’d never seen.
Then down to the beach for some excellent chips…
…and ice creams.
