Holidays - Kent

Hi there, we are back from a two week break. The first week we stayed in a caravan on the Isle of Sheppy in Kent. It was a great base for exploring north Kent. We did lots of walking and sightseeing and I took lots (and lots!) of photos. There were complaints that it always takes us twice as long to get anywhere, because I am always stopping to take photos! Here are just a few of them.
3rd - 7th August 2009
Isle of Sheppy
We did a great deal of our walking here and managed a few geocaches.

We loved touring the alleyways of Whitstable.

Eastchurch & Leysdown
Leysdown the site of the first powered flight in Britain by a British aviator.

Herne Bay
We lunched at Herne Bay, in a very traditional tea shop, and were drawn onto Reculver by the towers in the distance.

Fay sat and painted the ruins, whilst we walked on the beach and watched the Sand Martins flying in and out of their burrows.

Howletts Wild Animal Park
Temperatures reached 35'C at the zoo - the tiger had the right idea, laying in his pool.

6th August 2009

A very beautiful city. I couldn't resist photographing someone's kitchen window, it was very eye-catching with their utensils hanging up.

The Historic Dockyards, Chatham

My OH chose this outing and I would recommend it. Fay and Jay made a piece of rope at the Ropery and it was interesting to see inside the submarine and ships.
