Safely down in sunny Sussex
We are now in Eastbourne it wasn't as forecast we did head into Croydon but it was far too sunny to film so I gave up and it's back on the list for next year, I had thought of going straight down to cover and covering the trucks it's a pity that I didn't go for that option. We had a very good afternoon cream tea at lindfield and then back through Lewes and then to Eastbourne. We had a bit of time before the light faded so I had a wander around and took pictures of places that reminded me of incidents of times in my youth. Eastbourne is now a bit of a tip, very scruffy and full of foreigners although that was the same over forty years ago when I left. I had to give my nationality at the hotel, behind the counter came from heaven knows where, strange old world. We can see Mandy's car from the hotel room so we can keep tabs on it. We are meeting John and Maureen bishop at the Italian restaurant near the war memorial for dinner, we can go down with the wheelchair it's only a few mins walk away from the hotel. I'm not sure what well do tomorrow although we need to be at the pub ready for the film show in good time and check everything works. After that we drive straight down to Hythe near Southampton tiny sisters new bungalow. Then Friday with Yvonne and hopefully some time as family on Saturday before we get home late on. Next week there is slot on and limited chances for filming, best would be warm and sunny and no wind at Immingham so I could get the trucks done on the new roundabout there. We are in the Midlands Tuesday back home Monday mid-day on Wednesday. Thursday is another possible film day York and Harrogate are well up on the bus to do list. The clocks change this week so it will soon be dark at three pm again, happy day roll on summer but then it never comes. More tomorrow if I get a chance!
