American in England: Brighton

Brighton+1 Brighton+2 Brighton+3 Brighton+4 Brighton+5We rang in BST with a sunset stroll along the beaches of Brighton, my ears heavy with the noise of feet raking through rocks, my eyes glued to the horizon.

Today, England feels like summer.  The sun is out and the clatter of an unseen construction site is carried through the window like a yawn.  Birds chirp happily in the trees and though it’s still cool, I can again recall the taste of sweat, the smell of freshly cut grass and the buzz of insects doing their insect things.  I can close my eyes and imagine the way strawberries taste when they’re freshly harvested, the way a drink refreshes when it’s sipped in the sunshine and the way heat rises in a blur off the pavement.  This is going to be a good summer, dear reader, a spectacular summer.  I can feel it.  Can you?
