In the late morning before the inevitable tourist rush we walked along the western footpath to the Coastguard Cottages to visit the craft fair taking place there. Whilst there I couldn’t resist this quick take on the stunning Seven Sisters, sitting in the sun on the back step of the nearest cottage – owned by the Mutter family, who created the fair in order to try to help save the cottages from the ravages of the sea.
After lunch in the Cuckmere Inn, the view east from the car park across the winding river flats towards the rowing club and visitor centre was idyllic.
Turning to face south from the same position in the car park the gaze was drawn down the channel towards the river mouth and the lofty chink of white cliff rising above it. The Coastguard Cottages are just out of shot to the right on the opposite side of the bay.
