Whit Sun



I took the girlies to Littlehampton yesterday (the 'real, sandy beach Daddy') while Mrs H selflessly finished the gloss work on the stairs (= true).

We were struck by this café on the East Beach and well done I thought to the I imagine not especially radical local council for commissioning it; and lo, it turns out to be incredibly famous and in one of those thrilling coincidences we love in life is even in the paper today. It has a posh restaurant inside, but we mistook the long line of people waiting to be seated for a queue for takeaway chips, so we passed it by for the hotdog stand further down - by the lighthouse, which we also rather liked.

[Sorry, rubbishy picture from my phone - no competition here for Dane].

We came back tired and sunsplashed, with wet jeans and a plastic bucket full of shells, as is the tradition.

And the bannisters looked lovely.

  4. One determined woman? Yes, it's best to get out of the way, I find.

    I think you would like that cafe. They also have a miniature railway and a crazy golf and a pond with pedalos.

    Mind you, it being the South Coast I expect they also have Tories.

    You are right about the pun, tragically x

  7. the food in the cafe is dead good. we went there last year. We like Littlehampton but it always seems to rain when we go. We're off to Southwold this weekend to try and find some sun
