From the harbour to the pier

Wordless Wednesday



Last week I showed you some photographs of Eastbourne pier which is undergoing restoration following a devastating fire last year.



This week we are taking a  four-mile stroll along the beach from Eastbourne's vast Sovereign Harbour, back to the pier.

Sovereign Harbour is northern Europe’s largest composite marina complex and boasts four linked harbours.

  1. I stay inland, so seascapes are something I find fascinating :) loved the set of photos.

    Keith, I started a meme on June 1st, called A Prompt Each Day. ( http://aprompteachday.wordpress.com )

    Do stop by, write and link up if the prompt tickles your muse anytime.

    1. Now this looks right up my street (or down my seafront!) I'll certainly be dipping my toes in the water.

    1. It's a lovely place and it has held the UK sunshine record for as many years as I can remember. I am of course somewhat biased having been a lifetime local!

    1. Thanks. The tower is a Martello Tower and it's one of the 45 fortresses that remain of the 75 built around 1804 along our bit of coast. History lesson over!

  11. Fabulous shots! I really like the one picture (far right image) in the collage arrangement at the top. That's amazing with the water crashing against the pier! This looks like an amazing place to casually stroll while snapping a lot of pictures. I would have fun there, I know! Happy #WW, Keith!
