Clementines granny and uncle came to stay with us last week, and we were super busy doing lots of things. On Wednesday we headed down to Brighton to see Clems other uncle. I really like Brighton, it’s a bit like London but by the sea. The weather also managed to stay nice as well, despite looking like it might rain a few times.
I love wandering around the laines, there are so many independent shops full of all sorts to look at and things to buy. I can highly recommend going to Cloud 9 for cake or ice-cream. I had the most amazing peanut butter caramel cupcake, and a massive hot chocolate from there.
Sorry for the half eaten cake, but it was super yummy and that hot chocolate! Oreos, cream, flake, marshmallows – heaven! I might be slightly biased because Clems uncles girlfriend runs one of their stores but seriously. The cake is amazing. Obviously the best thing to do after all of that sugar was to head to the beach and pier to walk it all off and try to win (and fail) a cuddly toy/prize.
I love going on the pier, and it’s not just the smell of chips, doughnuts and candyfloss. We were there just as the sun was starting to go down, the starlings were out doing their murmurations and everything looked really pretty. I’ve never been brave enough to go on the rides at the end but Jesse and Clems uncle Mel decided to go on one. After spending a silly amount trying to win Clem a toy from the grab machines we admitted defeat and headed back for dinner.
Does anyone love Brighton as much as me? Do you have a favourite place to visit if you go there?
