Eastbourne

by Jem Croucher

Woke up to a morning
with zero chance of rain
Another perfect day
for our walkings once again
Starting here in Eastbourne
with the sun on deep blue sea
the day is full of promise
for my brother, Dave and me
Fourteen miles, the Seven Sisters
over cliffs, the country park
Heading down to Alfriston
where we’ll be before it’s dark

Every year in May, my brother Dave and I go for a week-long walk. We’ve been elsewhere but most times, the draw of the wonderful South Downs Way – out there on our doorstep – keeps us close to home. This year we started from Eastbourne.
