We parked up at Birling Gap and headed over the cliffs towards Beachy Head. The views are good and on a clear day would be fantastic. This day was anything but clear. Low cloud and mist drifted in and out. We didn’t make it to Beachy Head. It wasn’t the distance, just the visibility. Not sure where we decided to head back, but it was the right decision.
Later we drove up to Beachy Head and you could hardly see your hand in front of your face. We stayed up there until dark. It was a strange experience. Sounds were deadened and dull. There were very few vehicles or people around. The sense of isolation was strange, even though we were only a few hundred yards from the pub and a few miles from Eastbourne. Funny stuff mist, cloud and fog, cuts you off from everything. You are in a world of your own.
