Hastings Battleaxe marks the end of summer
It is October now. I've declared it the end of summer, and worn tights for the first time. The weather has been wonderful, but has now changed - it is wetter, and of course darker in the evenings and the mornings. I thought I'd record some of the last summer sunny sights to revisit in the dark days to come..
First, the new i360 tower in Brighton. The pod is easily visible, near the top of the tower. I don't fancy riding on it - not because I'm scared of heights, it just seems really, really tacky somehow. It amused me to read about the times it got stuck and they had to erect an emergency loo tent in the middle of the bar area - urgh, imagine that.

We saw this poignant poem placed by the usual bunches of flowers at the edge of the cliff. Clearly, this poor girl really did try to fly....
Another day last week we went to Bexhill. Had a coffee at the De La Warr. The light was amazing - but you can already see the approach of autumn, and impending rain.
