A BUSY morning in the hotel, and Margaret manages to get a later check out time.

Out for dinner in Eastbourne

Even so, we spend another hour in the foyer finishing some stuff off then go to find something to eat.

A cafe on the way out of town provides a huge breakfast and we carry on our drive to Eastbourne where we’re staying with our pal Ponnie.

We arrive late afternoon and sit and chat for a while. Before we know it, it’s nearly 9pm and we head out to a local Italian restaurant for some dinner.
