Such a perfect day

Yesterday really brought home to me just what a nice town Brighton is.

The day started off quite overcast. The completely white sky stretching in all directions looked like somebody gave up trying to fill in the colours in a paint-by-numbers picture of a seaside town.

By noon, this glitch in the matrix had been sorted out and the sky was a rich shade of blue. The sun was shining. The temperature was just right. Jessica and I ventured out into town.

We spent the afternoon browsing through the second-hand shops in North Laine looking at clothes and books (I picked up a novel by Ian McEwan for a pretty good price).

We stopped only to refresh ourselves with espressos at one of Brighton’s Wireless Hotspots where I availed of the opportunity to check my email and gloat on the Brighton New Media mailing list about not being stuck in an office.

By dinnertime, it was still really sunny and warm so we decided to eat at one of the tables outside Mai Ped Ped Ped, a Thai restaurant we had been meaning to try for quite a while.

The food, in my opinion, was excellent. Two thumbs up.

Before we finished off the day by joining the geeks at the Silicon Beach forum for a heated discussion on Search Engine Optimisation, I snapped a picture of Jessica admiring the biggest glass of white wine in the world.
