Rain, rain, go away

Last weekend we ended up down south in the pouring rain. I thought it was only the north that was prone to this sort of behaviour, but I was obviously not listening properly in geography lessons. It piddled down. All weekend.

What do you do when it's pouring down (especially with a two-year-old in tow?). Do try
  • catching the bus at Brighton Park and Ride
    (apparently riding on the top deck and bouncing precariously up and down through the streets of Brighton was hilarious, if rather terrifying for the adults)
  • the Dolphin Derby on Brighton Pier (the most fun you can have for £1, and heinously addictive)
  • Fishers Farm Park - hey, they have carousels, climbing walls, tractor rides and any number of goats/rabbits/horses you can stroke. It's pricey, but unlike a lot of other money-grabbing farm places, there's no other charge once you're inside.
Don't bother with:
  • Strada in Brighton (good service, some nice food, but the small one and I were definitely unwell later on that afternoon after eating the same pizza, which is rather suspicious...)
Nice down south though. Must go again, sometime. If it deigns to stop raining.
