3 September days near and around Brighton

God is not the author of confusion but of peace.

1Corinthians 14: 33

DAY 1 The Brighton Marina

Bugzy is parked at the East Brighton caravan park which has very good spacious facilities. A pleasant walk from there is the Marina with shops and restaurants. The Marina was opened by the Queen in 1978 and at that time it was the largest artificial Marina in Europe.

The wall of the Brighton Marina with a sign for the fishermen who may be tempted to fish in the calm waters of the harbour. The sometimes rough open sea is their domain.
On the open – sea, side of the wall fishermen were being successful in catching good sized fish.
The Marina harbour has some interesting places to live – above or on the water. The yellow and white homes are built on a very wide platform on stilts with water to the back and front. There are also a few modern homes on the water served by walk ways all sheltered by the marina harbour wall.
This picture captures the colours of the sky ,cliffs and the start of a ladder going deep down to the sea below with dark yellow Lichen on the wall.

The cliffs between Brighton and Eastbourne are chalk while those between Hastings and Fairlight are soft sandstone. Altogether there are approximately 45km of cliffs in East Sussex, which are largely unprotected by the sea.

Many people are trying to make peace, but that has already been done. All we have to do is to enter into it.
