Sunset from Deal Pier


A couple of weeks ago my friend and I decided we would try to get some sunset photos from Deal Pier, or, if the weather was bad just have a drink in a nearby hostelry..




My friend duly appeared at my house,and luckily the weather had brightened up after the rain during the day, so we walked into Deal along the Promenade. There was a pretty strong wind blowing but we enjoyed the walk to the end of the pier, and we could see that we might just catch the sunset we were aiming for.




The cafe was still open, but only just, so we bought two large hot chocolates to take away and spent the next hour waiting for the sun to do her stuff, so to speak. I think the hour was well spent, I am really pleased with the photos.




When the sun finally slipped behind the rooftops of Deal, we made our way to the pub, where we had a couple of drinks and a warm up, before walking home. We had a lovely evening, and we have promised ourselves another evening walk as soon as we can Smile

Bits and bobs


Our friendly Robin, gathering food for his chicks maybe?

Finally a blog from me, I am still here and still taking photos, but it has been a bit hectic with my daughter doing her final exams and things like that. My daughter has now finished University, just waiting to see if she has passed her degree (I am sure she has!) and what grade she will get, then she will be on the job hunting cycle.


St Peters Garden in Sandwich, starting to look very summery


My daughter and I went down to Rye last month to meet my sister in law on my daughters birthday. My daughter spotted this pigeon in the wall of the Landgate, maybe he is the gate keeper?


Also in Rye we spotted this lovely mouse done in wrought iron, isn’t it lovely?


Elevenses Smile we always start our day in this lovely little tea room, and yes it might be a little early for a cream tea, but who cares??? We go on to do a bit of shopping and have our lunch in The Mermaid, we call this our ‘Ladies wot lunch day’ because there is more food than anything else throughout the day!

From my garden, a pansy decorated with rain drops. Like everyone else we have had our fair share of rain over the last few months, we want sunshine and summer but not sure we will get any summer again this year..


I found this flag flying from the beach huts up on the seafront near us. I was on my way to the hairdressers, got engrossed taking photos and ended up being 5 minutes late for my appointment. I lose track of time when I am taking photos…ooops


Strawberry plants in the Library Garden, such a pretty colour


Pansies  in St Peters Church Garden, so cheerful on a dull day.


I spotted this from my garden the other evening, for some reason it appealed to me.


Finally, the yummy scrummy early birthday cake that my lovely friend Pat made for me on Wednesday, in spite of the fact that she has so much on her plate just now!!

Thank you again Pat, you are a Star Open-mouthed smile xx
