Getting to the Kent coast from London can be a bit of a drag and we were held up on the M25 due to a car that had set alight on the road coming into London. This caused massive hold ups but I was determined to get a bit of sea air. It had been a while and the weather was mild so off we went my companion and I, the Cockney Mole. We parked up at Westgate -on -Sea and then walked to Margate along the seafront, heading to the Turner gallery.
There are a lot of artists shops and galleries and it looks set to becoming very modern eventually. We visited the (Winter Gardensl )to the right of Margate Town Centre and checked out the up and coming acts that are going to perform there. Simple minds are a band I wouldn’t have expected to see playing there; but reassuringly they had a psychic show, which is the sort of thing you expect at a Seaside Resort.I always associate fortune-tellers and psychics with sea-side towns; the towns usually being a mixture of run down, majestic and fun.
The mole had his smart phone, which he used to map our walk,it can tell you exactly how far you have walked how many calories you have used and show you the exact map as you walk it. Clever stuff. After seeing this in action I have joined up with map this walk .
I just love this photo of the cat in the window in one of the old small city houses , The Mole was convinced the cat was stuffed, we stood looking at the window from the street, the cat was motionless with eyes closed, we stood there for what seemed like ages looking at it, a woman walking up the hill joined us ;the three of us were mesmerised -then the cat suddenly opened it’s eyes, it was spooky! Don’t know what the cat thought of us all gawping at it while it’s waking up!! strange…
I must just add a thanks to Justin in Arizona who is a GO Daddy internet adviser who saved the day for me yesterday and rescued me from being without my dashboard! For some reason it was not available and this is the panel where I write my blogs, he assured me he could fix it and he did, I was so relieved .I have subscribed to Go Daddy to host my blog for another year and would totally recommend them as a host.
I’m planning on learning how to lead walks, starting with an introduction to how to do that in March. I hope to step up the pace in March and get out on at least a couple of walks. All in all we clocked up about a 6 mile walk, on a really mild day in February, nice and easy does it..
Until next exciting episode.
keep it real….
