Sorry I wasn't able to
write last weekend but I went with Penny and Greg to visit their
friends in Brighton and the weekend was pretty hectic. I have attached
a photo which was taken last Sunday on the beach at Brighton. As
you can see, the old Brighton Pier is in a pretty sad state. It
has been disused for many years but the local people have raised
some money to have it restored. However, the restoration process
just got a bit harder!
The part of the pier
on the right of the picture started to collapse last November when
there were some very strong storms and it has collapsed a bit more
since. Then, last Wednesday, the part on the left hand side of the
picture caught fire! The authorities are sure it was arson since
there was no electricity or anything else which could have caused
it. If you look very closely at the part on the left, you can see
wisps of smoke - four days later it was still smouldering!
That's about it except
that your uncle Greg says he has finally had the pictures back from
Sally of when I went on the Peace March in London. I will put them
in a message next week.
I'll be coming home soon
- it will be good to see you again. This next week Greg and Penny
say they are going to Los Angeles and then on to see your grandparents
in Prescott, Arizona. They say they will put me in an envelope and
send me back to you from Prescott. I can hardly wait!
Lots of love.
