Day Trip to Brighton

My school set up a day trip to Brighton so I figured why not go.  All I had to do was pay £10 and show up at the bus. After an hour and a half nauseating bus drive on the “wrong” side of the road we arrived and were ready to explore the seaside town.

First we went to the Royal Pavilion. We didn’t go inside but it was beautiful from the outside.

After that we walked down to the beach and the pier.

It was a beautiful day so there were people jet skiing, laying on the beach (in clothing), and flying kites.

The only strange thing is that the “beach” looked like this up close.

The pier was full of the typical rides, food places and candy stores.

Brighton is known for it’s rock.  It’s pretty much a candy cane in different flavors.  I brought back the strawberry flavor and we both really liked it.

There was a hamburger place that claimed it made them “American Style”.  What does that mean?!

Some other photos from our day…

And I’ll leave you with a street band named Iron Boot Scrapers that was doing a cover of Rianna’s “Umbrella”.

They were awesome and we sat there for a good 20 minutes listening to them.  Here is the link to their website. www.ironbootscrapers.com
