We had such a lovely day yesterday, when we visited Brighton to see our younger son. Although it was overcast at the beginning of the day the sun soon shone through and the second part of the day was glorious. We started off at Waterstones Book Shop for coffee, but were saved (sadly) from purchasing any books as No 2 son arrived earlier than expected - he's a DJ in Brighton and had been giving a lesson. We had lunch in a splendid, cool, elegant Cuban restaurant and then strolled down to the sea front. While DH dozed in a deck chair No 2 son and I had great fun lobbing pebbles into the sea, and devising all sorts of games - there isn't any sand at Brighton, just pebbles - I love the sound the sea makes as it swooshes over them.
Here are some pictures of the
three of us debating a puzzle that No 2 son had - if a bottle of wine costs £10 and the wine costs £9 more than the bottle how much does the wine itself cost? We also had fun trying to work this one out - a frog has fallen down a well that is 20 bricks deep. It starts to climb up at the rate of three bricks forward a day, but also falls back two bricks each day. How many days will it take for the frog to get out of the well? No prizes, but I'll try to remember to post the solutions tomorrow.
After a walk along the sea front to the pier we sadly had to call it a day and drop No 2 son back at his flat to get ready for his DJ work in the evening. I hate the business of saying goodbye to him!
