I came here on a stormy day and was just watching the big waves crashing on the beach. I thought "The Doughnut" was the idiot taking the storm selfie on the end of the Groyne.

The side of this sculpture which faces out to sea was covered in graffiti, really horrible. Don't see the significance of it really.....

As you walk from the Pavilion Pier towards Hove this sculpture is on your right on the prom. Great little photo opportunity on a small stone pier which goes out slightly to sea.

If this is art please finish my life now. It's a so called doughnut that serves no point. You can't even call it interesting. It makes the pebbles around it look interesting

So many brilliant memories from over the years, starting in my student days. Last visited yesterday. Still magic.

You just 'have' to stick your arm through the hole, or pull a funny face through it whilst having a photo taken. A harmless, free, few moments of fun, if your passing by, but not really worth a hike to.
