Happy Days

A record number of ships anchored north of Margate this morning. I counted twenty-three when the normal limit appears to be seventeen. Is anyone expecting a hurricane?

Thanks to Barrie Smith for sending in the photo of St Mildred’s Bay from the early 1950’s. Happy Days!

Can you imagine the fuss from the CAA and the Health & Safety today if you tried to park a seaplane on the promenade? Not a high-visibility yellow jacket in sight anywhere, just a good place for the United States Navy to park while the crew buy an ice cream and chat to the holidaymakers. Of course the big seaplane slipway is no longer there today.

If only I had a time machine!
