As I’ve written before, I practically grew up on Brighton beach and still walk along there regularly.  It’s such a great beach – but only if you like your beaches full of pebbles rather than sand.  I think it was character building – all those tiptoe runs from your towel to the sea and back.  And of course, no matter what the weather, the sea is always freezing.  I haven’t paddled in the sea for years, maybe this should be the summer I revisit those happy times!

About Jackie Dinnis

Welcome to my blog where I am enjoying meeting my family - past and present - one at a time. Join me as I learn who my ancestors were, where they lived, what their occupations were and what everyday life was like for them.

    Ah memories captivate our mind and deliver us back to such a happy place.

  2. Ah, Brighton Beach! I’ve spent many a happy hour wandering along those pebbles – painful underfoot if you’re off for a quick paddle, though.

    Just dropped in here on the A-Z hop – this year I decided to post about my family history, none of my folks are from the south coast but the OH’s family has ties there in Hurstpierpoint and Eastbourne.

    Family history is like a mental jigsaw-puzzle, don’t you think?

    Hi I found you as part of the A – Z challenge and can’t wait to read more as someone who has done a little research into their own family tree
