Behind the beach huts

Behind the beach huts on Hove seafront; Brighton in the distance.

Seafront shelter

It's a constant battle repairing and refurbishing the seafront fixtures which are battered by rain, wind and salt spray each year. Work is well under way on this shelter at the Hove end of the seafront.

The tower

I walk past the tower of St Andrew's Old Church on the way to the supermarket; I do think the turret and battlements give it a certain fairytale look.

It's nice... see sunshine, shadows and a blue sky after so many grey, overcast days. It makes everywhere look better, even Hove Street, and leaves me feeling much more cheerful.

Looking rather sad

I have a tiny, exposed-to-the-elements balcony outside my living room. This winter's weather has really taken its toll on the plants, particularly the snow which was followed by heavy rain and frosts. The brown mass on the left of the photo was a beautiful orange-scented pelargonium which survived the previous winter happily. Looks like I'll be plant shopping later in the year.

Out of the window

I usually have a lovely view out of the side window in my living room: I can see the sea beyond lines of rooftops. Today, there's heavy sea mist obscuring the view.

Funny sort of day - one minute it's as black as your hat and the next minute it's bright sunshine. Church Road looking towards Portslade with Tesco on the right and Hove Library on the left.

Nice details

I'm a bit of a sucker for fancy red brick Victoriana - this is The Hove Club again.

No, Tesco, selling Easter eggs and chocolate novelties in early January is not Seasonal Shopping.
