LMOMH, that is absolutely breathtaking. You're lucky!
I'd never be able to walk to the edge and look over, though. :nono:
I should go up there more often.. haven't been up there in over a year now. It's beautiful! I guess we don't always appreciate what we have when we live so close to it? That pic you posted from your part of California was pretty stunning!
As for looking over the edge.. I have a hard time getting too close to it myself! One unfortunate fact is that the area of Beachy Head is, according to statistics, the world's number 2 suicide spot. But we try not to think about that.
It's actually a part of what is now the South Downs National Park which runs 87 miles from the town of Eastbourne in the East across the south of England towards Winchester and covers an area of 628 square miles. The South Downs themselves are a collection of rolling chalk hills.
