I have never seen so many senior citizens in one place in my whole life and that was when I took a coach trip to Eastbourne earlier this year.
I have never seen so many of them enjoying themselves, what with the dancing and the entertainment in hotels. I have never seen so many people doing the simple things in life like talking to one another rather than being on their mobile phones all the time.
I was amazed and humbled by their attitude to having a good time. Even in adversity with wheelchairs, mobility scooters, walking sticks and Zimmer frames with wheels they were undaunted as they ventured out along the promenade in all kinds of weather.
My lovely husband and I had arranged this coach trip as a week away in the UK for a change. It was a bargain for the price. £200 for 6 night’s dinner, bed and breakfast with 4 coach trips included as well!
We chose Eastbourne because we wanted to visit Brighton, which is close by and one of the daytrips took us there. I had always wanted to visit the Royal Pavilion, as I have been a fan of Georgette Heyer’s Regency novels all my life.
So we booked the trip and for the next few days I would like to share with you our experiences. I intend to add a blog everyday sharing my dairy of what happened. I hope you will enjoy it.
P.S. I have changed the character’s names to protect –ME!
Thought for the day: Start your day with a smile and finish it with champagne!
