Last week, we walked along the Hastings seafront and remarked that it was the first time we had ever been past the Pelham Beach playground and there hadn’t been a single other person there. The sky was grey, the wind fierce and cold, and it was about to rain heavily.
Today? Well, in time for the Hastings Mardi Gras ‘Fat Tuesday’ the sun came out, the winds dropped, and the people came. This photo is taken from by the pier – OPENING THIS SUMMER! – looking back over the twin hills that surround the Old Town. From this distance you can’t see the ‘No Jerwood’ signs.
