Hastings





decided to go down in one carrage

famous old fishing equipment storage sheds



rock formation believe it is sandstone



overlooking Hasting with "The Plank" pier in the distance, it was rebuilt and nothing put on it so it looks like one huge plank of wood


On the hill opposite sat Hastings castle, it didn't last long as a huge storm a few hundred years ago washed away the front part of it and eventually abandoned , so now just a shell



one of the many side streets with old buildings

fishermans area with stalls

Sue and i have lived not that far away for 4 years and this is he first time we have actually visited Hastings, believe it or not. I did have a reason for going here and that was to try out a lens I don't often have on my camera
Without going all tech it was a learning curve for using it for our Japan holiday next year, hopefully for street photography with a more discreet setup

I loved Hastings when we lived near there. St. Leonards On Sea. Did most of my schooling there. My parents were both fishing people and owned a fish and chip shop in St. Leonards. Grew up with German Shepherds. The net huts have grade 2 listing now. Happy Days. Hope you enjoy Japan.
