Lots of activity on Margate beach this afternoon but sadly I forgot my camera, never expecting to get up in the air in the first place, after all the rain that fell this morning.
In the end, I found myself sitting beneath an Oasis 747 as it did circuits around Manston and we did circuits between the Quad-biking on Margate beach and Ramsgate harbour.
On the way back I noticed motorcycles racing on the beach too. Margate had a very washed-out look about it but still seemed to have a reasonable number of spectators watching the motor racing activity along the beachfront.
While some people may be against the noise, Margate has not got a huge amount going for it as a winter tourist attraction,so perhaps we should just put up with the disruption for one wet weekend in February?
Many thanks to Dick Osborne for sending in some photos!
