Till death do us part

A chocolate skull found in a remarkable shop in the lanes in Brighton. They specialise in morbid and gothic chocolates and cakes.

It is rather bizarre, but the artwork is absolutely amazing. I forget the exact figues, but the cake costs something like 200 pounds, but it feeds about 100 people.

The shop is called choccywoccydoodah, and their website is www.choccywoccydoodah.com.

I think that their other shops do regular chocolates, but not this branch.

Brighton Beach

Yes, it is true. Brighton does not have a real beach. The beach consists purely of round pebbles. Ok so yes the beach is real, just not to a South African.

They have been word down for such a long time, that they are almost soft to walk on. But it is really different to walking on the beaches in Cape Town.

The upside of course is that when then wind blows, you don’t get the Cape Town sandblasting.

Here is a small pier with fishermen on the end (of course not to be confused with Brighton Pier)

Brighton beach is a great place to sit and contemplate the world; these two people were shot in Hove, sitting and watching the sea

Brighton Pier

Brighton Pier can only be described as a little tacky. It has huge potential, but I get the feeling that there is no great effort put into it.

It is filled with ice-cream shops and penny slot machines, as well as a few restaurants that don’t look particularity exciting.

It is the kind of place that you visit and cross off your list of places to go to.

Having said all that, Brighton itself is a wonderful place and well worth visiting, I will be posting some pics of the village shortly.

One of the many seagulls found in Brighton. These are the beach version of a rooster, waking you up really early in the morning,

Dockyard cranes at sunset

I caught this shop driving onto the M5 on the new the Koeberg Interchange flyover. I was crawling rather than flying, so I had the opportunity to catch this shot. The cranes are used to load and offload containers in the container terminal of Cape Town Harbour.
