I took the train to Brighton

 to keep my badges company,

Had to keep an open mind about some of the exhibits,

Yes. It's a partially incinerated wooden pallet.

Yes. It's a bath.

Took a walk on the front.

Paused with this gull.
Thought about gullibility. 

Liked this lonely helter-skelter.

Popped into the Museum
and played my favourite game

What would I


Settled on this day bed with screens
designed by Armand-Albert Rateau.

Did I buy anything in the shops?
A sought after 1947 King Penguin book
from their eclectic list.
Wildflowers of the Chalk
by John Gilmour.

A present from Brighton.


  1. I was at Brighton early October, my first time, to visit my daughter who lives there.
    Went to the end of that pier, spent a morning browsing in the museum, loved the pottery, kept pulling out drawers!
    The screen reminded me of the Klimt Exhibition I saw at Liverpool.
    Loved the present from Brighton mug, lovely connections.

  2. I am not very familiar with 60s designs but I do like the apple plate which reminds me of Orla Kiely. Do you know the name of the designer?
