i’m a little obsessed with beachy head

early last friday morning, we hopped on the tube to heathrow to pick up a rental car. we drove to the temple and loved spending some time there, and then cruised south to the coast. i had been wanting to visit the white cliffs at beachy head, near eastbourne, for months. we got to the sea right at golden hour and as we drove through green, rolling fields speckled with sheep, glowing and sloping down to the cliffs, i fell in love with this spot of earth. pictures don’t do it justice!

we parked the car and hiked up to the top of a ridge of the cliffs for some sunsetty views, which were absoultely stunning. we were loosing light fast, but the bright green atop the bright white cascading sharply into the blue ocean had us both in awe. so majestic!

it was suuuuper freezing cold but the beauty around us distracted us :) i am determined to go back to beachy head in the summer (especially because we found a lighthouse that is also a bed & breakfast!). this place felt somehow a lot like northern california to me, which my nature-craving, city-dwelling spirit loved. we walked down to and along the stony beach to relish the last few minutes of daylight.

the light was going down, down, down and the tide was coming up, up, up, but we didn’t feel done with those white cliffs! so we decided to head into eastbourne and come back in the morning! we saw these pretty lighthouse views on the way…

and then the next morning we headed out to find a lookout of the “seven sisters” cliffs from the other end. the light was so hazy that early dawn, so my camera couldn’t pick up on the awesomeness too well, but i still tried :)

i’ve decided beachy head is my new favourite spot in england – i am a little obsessed! we went to the famous white cliffs of dover the next day and easily concluded that beachy head is 100x times better. a truly stunning bit of earth.
