My first visit to Brighton

26 Mar

Here is today’s IDEAfit photo a day image:

The theme was quote. I saw this beautiful cherry blossom tree on my way to the station this morning and it looked so beautiful that I had to take a photograph. I decided to superimpose on it a quotation that emphasises the transcience of life and the importance of living in the moment. Too often I worry about the future, instead of focussing on today.

Anyway, today I needed to go to Brighton to present at a conference. I’ve wanted to go to Brighton for so long, but I was expecting my marathon visit to be my first visit.

The train journey was comfortable and uneventful and it was just a short walk from the station to the Brighton Centre. I didn’t get to see much of Brighton itself, but I did get to see the sea and the remains of the West Pier that was destroyed in a fire 11 years ago. The next time I’m here, I’ll be out running!
