I managed to get some photos in Hove this afternoon, here are a few of them.

And so it is over for another 364 days!  The build up, the excitement, the resolutions all on the shelf for another year. What a shame.

How did I spend my New Year? Well here I am in Hove, near the sea which I love and I got to see fireworks courtesy of some kind souls in the neighbourhood.  I also watched the fireworks on the London Eye via my TV (what would I do without all our wonderful technology).

Then to my delight at about 00:12 my daughter phoned to say “Happy New Year”, and indeed…now it was.

Woke early the next day and took a brisk walk to the beach, such a gorgeous day was not to be missed. 🙂

The streets were quite deserted and except for the occassional pedestrian I hardly saw a soul.   I greeted these few hardy citizens, about so early and received either a cheery response, a grumpy growl or a look that could melt ice. 🙂

The sea and sky were an icy shade of blue and the sun was rising from the east (as it does), casting a beam of light across the waves.   On the beach were the words HAPPY NEW YEAR, and so it shall be.
