Lowestoft Beach - "Sunrise Coast" on the dawn of the millennium
Lowestoft Beach - "Sunrise Coast" on the dawn of the millennium
This picture shows some of the people of Lowestoft (most easterly town in the British Isles) waiting to see the sun rise across the North Sea on 1st January 2000. Being at the far east of the country, this coast (depending upon the time of year) is often the first to receive the rays of the rising sun. The tourism local authority use the title of "Sunrise Coast" in their promotional literature.

This particular sunrise was definitely the "morning after the night before". A proportion of the people here slept on the beach following the 40000 strong millennium eve party that had taken place a few hours earlier. (Seemed like a good idea at the time!)
