Day #1823 Title: Broadstairs Prom
Location: Broadstairs, Kent

Notes: This afternoon we took another walk, this time along the prom at Broadstairs. Pity the weather was a bit grim, but we did enjoy a warming hot chocolate at Morelli’s on the seafront afterwards.

Day #1784 Title: Chalk & Flint
Location: Broadstairs, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mmEF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:  Julian & I made the most of the beautiful sunny weather today by taking a long stroll on the beach at Broadstairs, followed by ice cream and lunch in Ramsgate. Along the way we found a large rockfall from the cliff, where the rough round chalk nestled at the cliff foot with pieces of smooth, knobbly flint. It really showed how the different properties of the rocks behaved in the face of constant attrition from the sea. I thought this made a great find for Treasure Hunt Theme #31 – Rocks & Stones.

Day #1783 Title: A Bleak Outlook
Location: Broadstairs, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 24-105mmEF f/4 L IS USM
Notes:  This morning I headed down to Margate to visit my friend Julian who’s just moved there. We enjoyed a sociable but wet afternoon in a local café with some other friends before munching a fish and chip supper. This evening we decided to go and see the latest Bond film, Skyfall, at the tiny local cinema in Broadstairs. This view was made as the light was fading into the deep blue dusk. We were looking out across the bay towards Bleak House, made famous by the Dickens novel.
