eastbourne - beachy head and seven sisters

Today I spent a beautiful day walking to the Seven Sisters.
I first had to walk to Beachy Head. I was nearly there before (pictures, see: 28.08 - 1.9.06) But this time I went alone and I really reached it.

where is the wind coming from?

... but today it wasn't really windy..

Is this the only place for paragliders? You can see Eastbourne in the background. The shiny building in the sea is the pier.

On the cliffs you have to be very careful, because of the erosion. And also, this area is known as a place for suicide.  erosion

Finally I reached the Seven Sisters, seven eye-catching steep rugged white cliffs after a walk of 2.5 hours including stops to take pictures. Here I bumped into two friends from St.Giles, you saw them on the pictures from London. They are both Swiss students. But in contrast to me, they went by bus to Beachy Head and then walked to Seven Sisters :-). Together we went to the beach in front of the cliffs and enjoyed some sunny hours (?...) before we took the bus back to Eastbourne.
