Beachy Head Again

We ate a packed lunch in one of the car parks a short walk back from the headland. Here's the view we had westwards towards the Birling Gap-

And this was the view inland

The Range Rover belonging to the Beachy Head Chaplaincy drove past at least twice. I Googled the information and it seems there are around 20 suicides a year.

The edge isn't fenced off. The Daily Mail likes to go "Tut-tut" over pictures of people teetering on the brink. Silly, stuffy old Mail!  Have their journalists never been young? I'd be a teeterer myself if I weren't so scared of heights. There are more important things in life than health and safety.

Actually, I did get quite close. Then the shuddering began and I backed away. Here's a picture of some flowers clinging to the very last inch of England.
