It was a warm sunny day today - most of the day anyway, it only rained on the way home - and my friend Sandy and I went to Brighton, a town on the south coast of England and about 50 miles to the south east of where we live. It's famous for its pier (built at the end of the 19th century) and the fanciful Pavilion (built for King George IV at the end of the 18th century). It also now has a smaller version of the London Eye and Sandy and I had a ride on it. There are some lovely views from the top, but three of my best shots of the pier were spoiled by reflections because the pods have all-round glass
. There's a good view as well of the west pier, which was destroyed by fire in 2003 and demolished. Only a skeleton of part of it remains. We went into the Museum/Art Gallery cafe and I took a photo of the ceiling from its balcony (the other one is taken from the ground).
Here is one of my photos of Brighton Pavilion
