Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: I spent a grand day out with friends from GNPC at the beach in Happisburgh today. There were plenty of photographic opportunities. This is part of the increasingly wrecked sea defences which took another battering during the last batch of bad storms just before Christmas.

A Weekend On The Kent Coast

I’ve just spent a lovely weekend on the North Kent coast, visiting a friend who’s just moved to Margate. Despite its shabby reputation, the town seems to be on the up once more, with various renovation schemes underway to revitalise the area.

The weather wasn’t too kind to us on Saturday, but nevertheless we enjoyed a great lunch out in Margate, followed by a trip to the tiny cinema in Broadstairs to watch the latest Bond movie in the evening.

Sunday dawned warm and sunny, so we went for a long constitutional walk along the beach from Broadstairs almost all the way to Ramsgate. The tide was out and we got to see plenty of interesting rocks and shells along the way.

We ate a splendid late lunch in a little café in Ramsgate and walked around the fine old harbour there – the afternoon light was fantastic and at times, it looked more like the south of France than dear old Blighty!
