Having looked at everything on show in the Pie Factory and chatted to several visitors we were in need of some refreshments so we left Ross with his customers and headed for the seafront. The destination I had in Mind was The Two Halves micropub. I love real ale and Shaun at The Two Halves serves a great pint. His beers are all served from the cask and are all craft ales. Last night I had the last of the Gadds Green Hop Ale as a takeaway when my son collected Pizza from GBPizza I think The Two Halves has lots of people doing take out to drink with their Pizza from GBPizza, real Ale and real Pizza are a great combo. The Two Halves seemed the local traders meeting point. As I sat there minding my own business Tracy and Gregory from Ruskin Del La Mer tapped me on the shoulder and we caught up on the news. I spend a lot of time on Twitter and often tweet Tracy @RuskinRap
or comment on their Facebook Pages facebook.com/RuskinDeLaMer their shop is only fifty yards further along at 12 Marine Drive, Margate. I was most upset not to have been in the shop recently when Paloma Faith visited Margate and dropped in to say Hi. Tracy and Gregory went off to open the shop which is now working on winter hours and opens at about twelve oclock. Sorry if anyone was waiting to buy gifts from them I did make them late for work so blame me for the delay. Next along came Wendy from Next door at Crafted Naturally Wendy is Pupkin the shop cats human, you can find Pumpkin on Facebook www.facebook.com/PumpkinShopCat
I see from Pumkins facebook page he is searching for a payrise as he has to model things for the shop as well as meet and greet all the customers. By Now I had finished my Al Murray BBB (Beautiful British Beer) and Heather had finished her coffee and we headed off home.
I forgot to add we saw a seal. Whilst in The Two Halves Shaun pointed out to Heather the seal in the harbour. As usual I had left the camera at home so Sid the Seal is being identified as a harbour Seal as he was spotted in Margate Harbour.
