Blog to promote Margate and The Isle of Thanet and its wonderful sandy beaches and bays. I have a theory you can always count ten ships off the coast of Thanet and I test this theory as often as possible. I also Promote Ross Andrews and his Sand Art performed in the sandy bays of Broadstairs Margate and Ramsgate. Another favorite place is Botany Bay beach Kiosk and the bacon sandwiches over looking the sea trying to spot the seals that frequent this area.

I am in bed my MS has kicked me in the shins today and after getting dressed and trying to get downstairs I got as far as the bathroom but decided to go back to bed. So here I am laying in bed watching Monkey world and wondering why my legs wont work. My MS has knocked me for six in the last few days, last night it affected my vision I has flashing lights in my eyes and had to sit in a darkened room to get rid of them. All in all I am having a rough few days so I doubt I will be sleeping in a few minutes as Jerry Springer has just come on.
I did sleep but now at 18:00 I am about to watch the news and I feel awful.
I never saw it myself but the THANET GAZETTE has reported the Guardian featured Ramsgate in this weekends Travel section. Great news for Ramsgate which always has been a fantastic place to visit. I wrote a post about the Harbour Lights a few days ago CLICK HERE. We lived in Ramsgate when we first moved to Thanet thirty odd years ago and I hold the place dear in my heart. There are lots of fantastic eating establishments and hostelries and some marvelous hotels and guest houses. All in all I like the Guardian Newspaper recomend people to visit Ramsgate. When I first moved to Ramsgate I did I study of local history and Ramsgate has some great tales to tell and the Royal Harbour is fascinating.

Just been over to Ramsgate to look at the decorated boats in the Royal Harbour at Ramsgate. This time of the year it gets dark so early and I actually thought it was later than it really was. The lights on the boats made for a colourful experience. It was just to cold for me to get out of the car and for Heather to push me in the wheelchair so I sent her out with the cameras and any pictures are taken by her and not me I sat in the warm car and watched from afar. If you want cheering up head on down to Ramsgate Harbour where all the restaurants and bars are decorated and awaiting your custom and the lights are an added attraction.
