We have recently returned from another visit to Whitstable in Kent where we thoroughly enjoyed a few days with our eldest daughter and her family. Living as I do by the seaside and with strong family links to Devonian fishing stock, I think the sea and water is in my blood and I love to be near it, so the prospect of some time on the Kent coast appealed very much.
But the fact is, that it is a funny old place, without the sophistication of perhaps a Devon or Cornwall seaside town but with the enduring appeal of an historic, honest working town.

PS Make sure that you read Graham Tapper's story about his latest journey in his 4/4 through France to Italy on his blog 'Morgan travels with Graham and Helen' moggo-blog.blogspot.co.uk, lovely photographs and a great story.
