"The main risk for today is falling off a cliff"
  1. This is the headline shot

    It's first so social sharing picks up the right preview image :)
  2. We took the train from London to the small seaside town of Seaford on the southern coast of England
    Static
    Only an hour and a half!
  3. Seaford is adorable
    Static
  4. Look at these little huts (storage lockers?) along the beach!!
    Static
  5. This is the start of the hike to the Seven Sisters
    Static
  6. A little bit closer...
    Static
  7. A pastoral interlude along a canal
    Static
  8. Can't go anywhere in England without encountering the Queen's swans, it seems
    Static
  9. Cows!!

  10. Lunch break on the first of the Seven Sisters, with views back over Seaford
    Static
  11. I took a little nap on the grass :)
    Static
    Carefully avoiding the rabbit pellets and cow piles...
  12. Those chalk cliffs!!
    Static
    Apparently they are sometimes used in film / TV production to stand in for the White Cliffs of Dover because they are actually whiter from natural erosion
  13. Some of those uphill climbs were pretty serious business
    Static
    Although the hike overall was quite easy, if a bit long at 13 miles
  14. Another view of the cliffs :)
    Static
  15. There are guest houses at Birling Gap, a cafe, and a small protected beach
    Static
    But the cliffs are receding at 40cm a year and the houses aren't important enough for the government to build a sea wall so their longevity is questionable
  16. Further along there is a lighthouse at Beachy Head
    Static
  17. Sadly there are a lot of suicides at Beachy Head as it's quite high up and easy to jump from
    Static
  18. The way down to Eastbourne
    Static
  19. I didn't expect it to be such a large city
    Static
    I was temporarily stunned by the sight and confused as to where I was
  20. Apparently Eastbourne is England's sunniest city
    Static
    There is lots of beach, oddly segmented
  21. On a train from Eastbourne back to London now - thanks for riding along!
