Happy Birthday in Brighton!

This year for my birthday – turning 27! We were planning on going to Glastonbury, as there are little interesting attractions, shops and cafes. As the 29th was getting closer and pay day came plans changed – we went to Brighton (again). We’ve visited so many times we even know where to park all day for a few pound.

The great things about Brighton are: It’s close enough to drive to in a day, there are always more things to do, each time is different! We first went when we were newly together and visited Preston Manor, another time we went to Sea life aquarium, to the annual Fiery foods chilli festival and a night out one Halloween.

This time we planned to visit Brighton museum and Art gallery and go on Brighton Ghost Walk. The exhibitions inside the gallery are small and there are a few art pieces. It’s something to do indoors to get inspiration from.

Afterwards we ate a great Thai meal at Street Thai and walked round the shops and lanes. I finally saw a Choccywoccydoodah shop in person – it’s incredible what they do with chocolate!

Here are some photos from the day:

We went on the Brighton Ghost Walk – fun use of time, going through the lanes and learning interesting facts!

We went on the rides on the pier! So much fun going on the mini rollercoasters and bumper cars.

Science and History Museum picks in photos

Here are some of my favourite things I captured on my camera at the Science and History Museums in London recently.

Louisa Aldrich-Blake “When you start a thing you must finish it”
sm2
True in Science, in life.
sm3
The rounder and smoother the rock the more likely to have traveled, replace the word ‘rock’ with ‘person’ and it relates to life!
sm4
This huge structure is, wait for it- a giant Sloth! Amazing!
sm5
A Squid sculpture and us, tired feet!
sm6
People stopped what they were doing to photograph the sunset- sweet! A stranger said to me ‘It’s beautiful’ and I agreed.
sm8
Ate amazing tasty burger and hotdog at The Diner Covent Garden

Walking through London all zones, China town is my favourite for always being so pretty. It’s also the Year of the Sheep.
