I went to Beachy Head today.
What is Beachy Head famous for?
Multiple ice cream vans.
Two lighthouses, Belle Tout on the cliff top just along a bit, and one in the sea.
(Belle Tout they keep having to move further back from the edge as the cliff is eroding)
Wind. The kind that rips your face off.
(Iâ€™ve now got the ruddiest cheeks ever)
And if you dare to look over the edge, it is a sheer 550 foot drop.
But mind how you go.
It takes six seconds to fall.
It would probably feel like an eternity.
Stay safe, and youâ€™re laughing.
Because it takes your breath away. Not just the view, but the sheer beauty of sea below crashing into rock, and the cry of gulls as they swoop to meet the gales.
Yup, itâ€™s a tonic for the soul.
Like youâ€™re standing at the edge of the world.
