If you have seen any of my photos from Eastbourne in England, you might remember the breathtakingly beautiful pier which was built in 1870. Today, there was an electrical fire and the largest domed part of it, the part where they have the Arcade games, has burned. You may see the photos from the BBC just here. I am thankful that the firefighters worked so hard to save the pier itself.
It is my hope that the Pier will be restored as closely as possible to what the Victorian builders were able to accomplish.
|Remember the Where's Waldo books? (Where's Wally In the UK). See if you can spot me in the above photo!|
|I love this photo that Richard took of the pier from 2012. Isn't it beautiful?|
|The Pier had Eastbourne Blue during the 80's,/ the light blue- you can see the old paint at the top of this lovely railing. Then, it was painted a darker blue...I am hoping for the lighter blue once again!|
|This is me from two years ago, trying not to get blown away! You can see the large dome on the pier at the left of the photo, that is the area that burned.|
|This shows how large the domed area really was...|
|This photo is from the end of the Pier, which was not damaged.|
