Roof of fisherman's hut in Hastings Old Town.
The Old Town front at Hastings is home to fishermen and many fat and raucous seagulls. They are at home with human beings and traffic alike and sometimes too lazy to fly, wander across the road in front of cars, causing the cars to stop to let them pass. Fortunately the road is narrow and no one speeds.
On fine days like today - a weekday lunchtime - the men sitting outside the pubs in Hasting are mostly middle aged. Dress code is: one earring, singlet vest, shorts and trainers. Tattoos are shown when decency allows.
