The Last Day of Summer

September 12, 2013

This weekend we had a few last hours of sunshine before the rain showed it’s face and didn’t go away. We made the most of the nice weather on Saturday by driving to Brighton for the afternoon and visiting the pier.

We only stayed for a couple of hours, and played in the arcade, enjoyed the view and Rob and Jess went on the roller coaster. It was the perfect afternoon and I’m sad to say goodbye to the sunshine.

Here are a few pictures from our day…

I love walking along the quiet end of the beach at Brighton and seeing the pier up ahead. Brighton has always been one of my favourite places and the pier looks so fantastic from afar.

 

 

I spent quite a lot of time on the 2p arcade games, I get a bit addicted, so Rob and the girls ended up leaving me to it for a while! I’m so good at them that I managed to win 6 cheap tacky prizes for the girls!

I love all the old fashioned fun fair signs at the end of the pier. It reminds me the heyday of the British Seaside.

Jess and Rob went on this one and Lila and I kept our feet on the ground and took more photos!

Check out the stag night, with the blow up doll. They were definitely old enough to know better! I love seeing all the hens and stags at Brighton fully embracing the seaside tackiness!

 

 

As the sun began to set and the wind picked up we had a quick sit down on the deck chairs and enjoyed the view.

I was too busy having fun to take any proper outfit photos, but I’m wearing a dress from Lindy Bop which is available here. My shoes and cardigan are from Primark.

We were lucky to have one of the nicest summers that England has seen for a long time and it feels like it got cold over night. It’s definitely time to start thinking about fun autumn activities to do with the kids. I’m thinking lot’s on puddle splashing, conker collecting and jumping through piles of leaves.

Then before we know it we’ll be making christmas decorations and making snowmen.

    You’re very lucky to live so close to the seaside. And yes, the end of summer indeed. I awoke to foggy mist this morning although the sun’s breaking through now. It’s definitely time to get out the chunky knitwear. Love it though! 🙂 xx

    I love Brighton! I was born there (unfortunately we don’t live nearby anymore) so I always have a special little place for it in my heart. Lovely photos!
