Eastbourne & Downs

This past weekend in London was the last bank holiday weekend before Christmas, so following our bus tour on Saturday, Ben and I took the train south to Eastbourne on Sunday for a two day hike. Eastbourne marks either the beginning or the end of the South Downs Way, a 100 mile footpath and bridleway (we looked that up too), in southern England. We only spent a couple hours in the sunniest place in the UK (seriously) – grabbing a very nice lunch, taking a peek at the beach, doing a bit of grocery shopping, and arriving at the tourist centre 30 minutes after closing. Hence our two day hike was sans map, which of course made it all the more rewarding. Or so we tell ourselves. Anyhow, despite the peculiar number of octogenarians in Eastbourne, we were quite impressed with the rather bright seaside village.

Confused about the very clever blog post title? You obviously need some Kenny Powers in your life…
