Today Miss Lexy, my trusty motorhome was booked in for some work. She had a cracked water pipe leading out from the kitchen sink and need her water sensors checking. I set out in plenty of time to make the journey around the M25 and to Burgess Hill. I felt quite happy, wide awake and ready to go. However emotions as we know can just change and as I reached Swanley on the M25 tears came from no where. I have so many memories of Rich and today reminded me of last May when we traveled to collect Miss Lexy for the first time. Also of the many adventures we had all together. It was to be like this all the way to Burgess hill. Fortunately I could see where I was going. Once I’d reached my destination I took a few moments, took some deep breaths and handed over Lexy’s keys. She would be there for a good few hours so I had arranged to meet My friend Jono here.
We toddled off to Brighten. Found a car parking space and walked along the sea front. The sky was bright blue and the sun was warm and bright.
After a while walking around and seeing some very interesting art work on the buildings we enjoyed some lunch again on the sea front.
A little beach restaurant was chosen and as an added bonus we were told that everything on the menu was half price due to the governments new eat out scheme. With that in mind we picked a sharing fish platter. It was delicious.
Brighten is a very interesting place to explore and Rich, Ben and I enjoyed exploring it last year. It also reminded me of my last trip away with my dad which was to Glasgow. A vibrant city, also full of amazing art work.
I found this description of Brighten:
“Brighton’s location has made it a popular destination for tourists, renowned for its diverse communities, quirky shopping areas, large cultural, music and arts scene and its large LGBT population, leading to its recognition as the “unofficial gay capital of the UK” and is the most popular seaside destination in the UK for overseas tourists. Brighton has also been called the UK’s “hippest city”, and along with Norwich named as one of the UK’s most ‘Godless’ cities, and “the happiest place to live in the UK””
This is so true as their are many statues and beautiful buildings to see.
It was now time to head back and collect Miss Lexy. She is all repaired and ready for her next adventure.
Although it’s been an emotional day it’s been a nice day and it reminded me that I need to persevere and keep doing things like this x x ❤️
