I lack photographic imagination. We’ve been to Lewes Castle, just north of Brighton, several times, and it’s worth the repeat visits. It’s a splendid example of Norman castle constructions with later embellishments. But I just keep taking the same photos over and over again! Entering the Castle gate, July 2013.

I’m a sucker for the photo retrospective–same subject, same treatment across different time periods. So when we walked past our old street in Brighton this past summer, I made the family stop so I could capture this photo: Sam, age 7, on Queensbury Mews in Brighton.

The day our British friends left Cville for DC. Ah well. Perhaps the rain yesterday made them feel at home.
Our first visit ever from UK friends! Anjali and Sam were so excited. Not a lot of sleep going on in our house tonight…
Sam tries out a bigger bike at Blue Wheel Bicycle. I can’t believe that it’s been two years already since she rode her first two-wheeler on the promenade in Brighton.
November is the month of change. Last year AC left Linden Lab and started his own company with three of his colleagues. They had an intense year–lots of growth, lots of work, lots of connections–and now, after a year, AC feels it’s time to move on to new things. One new thing is a company […]
We ended up having about 30 minutes to kill before our coach left the station, so we killed them on the beach, in the sun, throwing rocks in the water. It’s never easy to say goodbye to this place.
at long last.
October 2008. Sam is 3 years old. April 2010. Sam is 4.5 years old. October 2011. Sam is 6 years old.
Today we reached our intended destination! Bus up to Devil’s Dyke and then a lovely walk down to the Shepherd and Dog pub at Fulking with Gabriel, Nellie and their two kids. It was steep going down (and steep going back up) but at least we had our destinations in view the whole time so […]
were absolutely no help on our failed Pulborough to Amberley walk. We got lost twice and then when baby Sadie started to fuss it was time to find a pub and call it a day. This being England it was easy to find a pub. Much easier than finding the correct footpath to Amberley!
Sam and her Swedish friend were reunited in the very park where they first met last year. Very cool.
Here is Sam in front of the sarcophagus of Nectanebo II, the last native Pharoah of Egypt. The sarcophagus has a funny history–it was never used as a sarcophagus. It is believed that Nectanebo fled to Ethiopia when the Persians invaded his kingdom and his body has never been discovered. But the sarcophagus eventually turned […]
And we’re staying in Hove, actually (!)
