Traffic pours into thanet
Lunch time today we drove along Margate seafront the beach was rammed full of trippers. Parking was full on the harbour arm and everyøne was enjoying the sun. Margate was the place to be. As we headed off the Island cars waited turn to experience the delights of Thanet. As we got to Birchington Square the usual bottle neck became evident as cars queued from Brooksend to the roundabout, a site that was a regular of summer feature 30 years ago. I could give all sorts of reasons like ash clouds to Willie Walshes BA not working but I put it down to the Brits love of the seaside on a gorgeous sunny summer day. And with the weather set fair for the future weeks I hope the traffic jams continue and the site of knotted hankies and lobster red skin becomes the norm in Thanet once again as more and more of us decide staying i n the UK aint so bad after all.
