On September 1st, a few days after I return, Brighton has one of the lowest tides of the year. While some people are cycling along the sand I'm planning to be more relaxed. I'll be at the West Pier ruins from around six, meeting some friends and toasting the sea. Last time I was on the beach at low tide was back in 2005 when Mr. Ribot and I stumbled upon the revealed West Pier. It was quite something.
