They were pressed-up against the cliff wall in one of the alcoves and as I paddled-by slowly below, lots of people, adults and children must have noticed but walked-on quickly.
This is something I've never seen before in public but in the space of a week, I've come across it twice in a space of half a mile. I wonder if I've discovered a new and disturbing local trend but I'll reserve judgement until it happens a third time!
Meanwhile, on the way out of Birchington to fly the 'superbikes' at Brands Hatch at lunchtime, a couple of motorists appeared to be having a punch-up at the same bus stop in the square that I wrote about yesterday. The traffic was backed-up behind them, all the way to Brooks End and beyond and I couldn't stop to find out what it was all about; the heat perhaps?
Other than all that, what a glorious summer's day. Pity I missed the carnival though. Does anyone have any photos they'd like to share?
