I get to see the Thanet coast as often as I can my wife always asks "home? or do you want to see the sea" I have to be feeling really awful to not want to look at the sea. The reason I am writing this is because last week one of the daily paper's was telling the rest of the country Margate is a property hotspot. In my mind it has always been blooming fantastic. We have lived in both Margate and Ramsgate and to me anywhere in Thanet is good but I have a soft spot for Margate. But I have had connections with all the town's over the years and Margate comes out on top. So why would I want people to move to Thanet? Why am I not trying to keep this little haven of peace all to myself !!
It's like this whatever I say won't change a thing. People who want a seaside life won't be swayed by an old fossil of a blogger who gets around in a wheelchair. No. The smell of the sea the sound of the waves the gulls squawking will be the thing that makes up the mind. All the rest the beaches in sunshine and after a December storm fishing off the rocks at Kingsgate at night in Mid November the coastal walks the village pantomime and the favourite coffee shop that all comes later after moving here. People get comfortable they grow into Thanet and wear it like a comfortable gardening jumper. It's got a hole on the elbow and the stitching is fraid but I could never part with it I just love it to much
