We are on a one week trip to England! The weather during the Channel crossing was great. We always take the ferry (and not the tunnel) – mostly for nostalgic reasons, the ferry is a bit slower, but the experience (“There! The White Cliffs of Dover in the distance”) is unbeatable.
Hastings, the place where William the Conqueror landed in 1066. The old harbor is very attractive for a walk, and the restaurants offer good food too.
This seagull had its head straight into the west wind, intelligent animals, always on the lookout for some food that the tourists may drop. I love their cry; a mix of hopelessness and glee.
I loved the old boats on the beach; doesn’t this scene have a post-apocalyptic flavor to it? It almost looks as if the background is fake, but this is the real sky and beach. The colors are splendid.
