Hanging Around Hastings

Posted by Caz on Thursday, 3rd July 2014

My first pier in East Sussex was at Hastings. It’s currently in a rather sorry state, having burned down in 2010, but is in the process of being repaired. It’s hoped it will be open to the public again by Summer 2015.

Obviously, there wasn’t anywhere to have cake on the pier itself, but I found a hotel just opposite where I had a tasty hot chocolate sponge on their terrace overlooking the works.

Dreich In Dunoon

Posted by Caz on Thursday, 26th June 2014

After my trip to Rothesay, I then headed by train to Gourock and then a short ferry ride to Dunoon. Sadly, the weather had turned rather dreich by the time I arrived. The pier itself is no longer open to the public and the ferry docks a few hundred yards away at a new linkspan.

I found some tasty cake at the pier café kiosk which was open but not doing much business, before returning to Gourock on the ferry and thence back to Glasgow.
