Margate by the Seaside

While its still summer, here are a few summery seaside photos from our recent weekend getaway in Margate.

Every year we go to the seaside for a dose of fresh sea air, a stroll by the beach, an icecream, and of course some fish and chips. Last year we went to Deal, and the year before that did visit Margate, walking between there and Ramsgate, stopping off in Broadstairs for lunch. The Kent coast is so close to London, that it makes it the perfect quick and easy weekend destination. Just an hour and a half after we finish work on a Friday, we are on holiday by the sea… And although it isn’t a wild adventure, there is something quietly comforting in returning back to the same part of the country every year.

The Walpole Bay Tidal Pool, shown in the left image, is the largest tidal swimming pool in the country, is Grade II listed and recently celebrated its 80th birthday!


A breath of Mountain Air

Here is a breath of mountain air from the Dolomites to freshen up your Monday!

We discovered this beautiful corner of Italy because friends from Chicago were touring around the area on holiday and we used the opportunity to meet up for a long weekend.
