Hovering

A stunning afternoon and I could kick myself that I was flying without a camera, as the tide is very low today and the scenery and water colour a wonderful contrast of blues and browns. On the sands opposite Minnis Bay I counted ten adult seals, a little information for anyone from Thanet Coast Watch who might be visiting the site.

Michael of Michael’s bookshop has sent along a photo of the old Hoverport in Ramsgate, which brings back memories as the site of my first job when I left school, working the car-deck on those huge machines that were guaranteed to make the best sailor seasick in some of gales we crossed the channel in. It’s funny that there’s nothing left there now to remember it by.
