I cant believe a week has gone by since last Skywatch So much has happened I have been to see the doctors had blood taken seen another nurse and an occupational therapist what a busy life I lead. Atleast I have found out I have an infection so once treatment gets underway I might start feeling better. These pictures were taken a couple of weeks back when we went to Broadstairs and showed you the fish and chips shop on the harbour, To be honest it is all my wifes work,with me not being able to stand she has to take the piccies and I think you will agree she does a good job. The link at the top is to Trinity House who look after all the lighthouses in England . North Foreland was the last light house to be mechanised in 1998 ending a long history of men keeping the lights burning from this spot that started in 1499.There is another lighthouse at Dover called South Foreland and I can recomend the walk along the cliffs there as on a sunny day you can see France and more importantly if you time it right you can pick blackberries and if you go with the right person she can bake blackberry and apple pie before supper time .
The reason for the light house is to warn ships of the Goodwin Sands know as the ship swallowers but I will leave that story for another day.I also forgot to mention this is just above Joss Bay, a great spot for Rock fishing for Cod on a cold November night but mind you footing else you can fall in and yes I speak from experience.
