A few scenes from a blustery Hastings

 From the top of East Cliff wild seas looking towards St Leonards

Various bits and pieces in Hastings that have caught my eye today.

 A waving Queen for £2.99 .....

... but the shop was closed.

 Hastings Old Town with the famous fish huts 

 Brilliantly fresh fish for sale 

 High winds and rough seas

 Despite or because of the seas surfers in action

 What's left of the harbour wall
Views from the top of East Hill
(above and below)

 Barmy Bottles

 'Reopen Saturday February 25th'!

Before Waterloo, Azincourt or Crécy, at least one place where the French won.
