This week has seen some fine sunny weather in Eastbourne along with most of the country and we have visited the beach chalet on a daily basis. The severe winter storms this year did some serious damage to the beach mainly by depositing rocks of all shapes and sizes on four of the main bays for bathing. It didn't seem to bother the children today so I ventured down with my little camera to grab a few shots at low tide.
It seems scarcely believable for the amount that the council charge annually for rent that so few of the chalets have been occupied in view of the splendid weather so far this summer.
|Nasty rocks to negotiate|
|Holywell beach chalets 1 to 69 in this view there are only 7 being used|
|Low tide looking towards Beachy Head the beach in the photo above this one used to be as sandy|
|The winter storms affected the geography of the beach this area was a favourite of mine for rock pooling last year|
|A remnant from when the fishing boats use to tie up here in the 19th century|
|Concrete and angle iron hazard washed up from who knows where|
