Thanet weather forecast service

Just received a phone call from friends who are shopping at Westwood Cross. the rain we were promised is as far as WWX,. Evidently rather than drive to meet us they are having coffee in Marks and Spencer. The description was "the rain is coming down in sheets" .Here in Margate a few drops that have hardly wet the path.You have to love a LOCAL weather report.

Margate Seabathing

On Sunday we walked to Westbrook and back via Margates Marine Drive along the way I passed Heidi Plant's A Bright Eyed Fairytale outside Dreamland other artists were brightening up the hoardings on Elephant Hill. I took various photographs along the way including cellar covers and the new Beach Hut Houses at the Royal Seabathing. It was nice to see all the people out enjoying the beautiful sunshine. Many people were emptying their beach huts and packing summer into the backs of cars from where the stuff of summer will be put into storage until next spring. We have had a beach hut at Westbrook for almost thirty years so I know the feeling as summer fun is put away. On our way back from Westbrook we walked along Marine Drive stopping to say HI  to my favourite shop keepers Tracey and Greg  owners of Ruskin de la Mer gift shop where you can  buy all manner of seaside goodies. From there we went to say to Jackie and Shaun at  the TwoHalves Micro Pub they were doing a brisk trade in their craft Beers and Ciders I didn't see many people drinking wine but they offer a good range.
As we walked past the Lifeboat station I got a better view of the enormous yacht that has been moored off Margate, evidently owned by a billionaire. We headed for home past Haeckels and through Dalby Square where an awful lot of redevelopment is going on and snapped some pictures of the leaves beginning to turn to the autumn colours and also a great display of Old Mans Beard on Wilderness Hill.
