A Sunny Day

John Logie Baird - inventor of the television

L is for ...Lisa

A sun washed building in the heights

Lovers on the beach...


Church bells are a ringing...

Romantic old buildings...

Little houses ,ever so sweet...

Leafy pathways tucked away...

Cups and saucers, mirrors and paintings...

Old coins,pearls on a string, dusty books and delicate lace handkerchiefs...

Beautiful things in a beautiful shop...

A bicycle to ride into the sunset with.A lady just looking...

Interior Illusions...

A little shop of delights

Hello Mr Statue up there...

Trinkets in a box for £1 each...

The Old Bank House


The ebb and flow of the tide, time to go home...

I spent last weekend in the beautiful coastal town of Hastings. The famous battle of Hastings, taking place in 1066, saw Englands first Norman king on the throne otherwise known as Willian The Conqueror. In addition to this, it was here that John Logie Baird invented the television. Nice one Mr Baird.
The weather was ldyllic last week, the sun was ever so sunny. Apart from foolishly wearing platforms (they make my legs look longer in my new pair of jeans) eveything was lovely. There is definitley a French influence in Hastings, having being conquered by a French King. I found myself transported to some of my favourite areas of Paris, as I meandered(wobbled) around this beautiful town.There i an amazing selection of interesting antique shops, interior stores and yummy restaurants. I enjoyed a delicious plate of fish and chips! I took pictures with my Blackberry, and I can be a bit cock eyed, but I hope you enjoy...

Hi Lisa!!! What a beautiful post, wow...this town looks so enchanting. I can see the similarities to French influence although I have never been to France! It is near the top on my list of places to travel to. The leafy pathways tucked away, the lovers on the beach, and the romantic buildings were all so charming. As I'm sure you know, traveling to new places excites me a great deal! :)
