Home Again - Good Week

Well I have a very nice Conference in Brighton, The hotel was great I had a fabulous regency style room with the most comfortable bed in the whole wide world. As an added bonus I had a balcony with a fantastic sea view, who could ask for more. (We also had fabulous weather as well)

Above is the view from my balcony!

At the end of Regency Square was the remains of the old West Pier, it was burnt out a few years ago,it had been closed since 1975 and there had been no money to restore it, when is magically burnt down. The problem has not gone away because to completely remove it from the sea at this point would cost millions, so it seems to be staying as an interesting land mark in its own right!

We did have some outstanding weather so here is a nice shot of my conference buddy Stuart, sunning himself on my balcony, Ah bless him!

We got back yesterday after a horrendous journey home on the M25, as usual it was a car park for most of the journey so the trip down took around 90 minutes and on the way back it was 3 1/2 hours. Next time we will stay an extra night and head home on the Saturday morning.
