I took a spontaneous trip out of the city to the little seaside town of Brighton, with my main goal to visit Seven Sisters County Park. This is just the first small batch of photos I've edited, since I arrived back around 10pm and found myself exhausted.
Upon arrival, the park looks perhaps like many others - gorgeous hills speckled with grazing sheep, lots of open space - but its main feature is its white cliffs on the sea. I find it quite ironic that I've now seen the English Channel before I've even seen great beaches of the States. I've never seen the Gulf of Mexico or Pacific Ocean. I've only visited beaches in the three states, all bordering my home state of Pennsylvania. I was quite amused by the overall lack of sand.
And so I found myself standing before enormous white cliffs, in awe of the beauty.
England, from all I've seen, is such a gorgeous country. I suppose the US has its highlights as well, but to be honest, I haven't visited all that many national parks or made the pilgrimage to any magnificent sights. I am definitely taking advantage of some of what Britain has to offer - clearly not all - and it's given me a new found appreciation for nature's wonders.
PS The park is an hour outside of Brighton, or approximately three hours outside of London. It's definitely worth a visit, in my opinion.
