Another section of the ruin of the West Pier got washed away by the storm yesterday. I went to have a look today. Some people in Brighton are quite sad about this, which is quite touching when you consider that the pier barely exists at all now. They don't want their ruin ruined even more. I felt a little envious that I'm stuck in a small town inland and wasn't able to watch, free of charge, this titanic struggle betwixt nature and a great big chunk of pseudo-oriental Victorian marine engineering.
