sunday on the eastern kentish coast

darlings

after the surprising sunshine of yesterday there was a return to the customary dampen gloom of an english wintry day – and lovely it was too – with plenty of stops for hot mugs of tea and a Proper Breakfast, a Bracing Walk across the Blustery beach, admiring everyone’s labradors who were enjoying the Weather most Especially and a drive through country roads and high streets with vintage cinemas and more teashops (vicar) and now we’re sitting in the kitchen (isn’t that delightful*?)

William has many diverse cultural interests and allegiances. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and a lovely glow in his living room. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

we took a trip to Westgate-on-SeaOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

where we enjoyed a significantly splendid british breakfast (William had the “Veg option”).

then we took a trip further along the coast to RamsgateOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

even the statues needed a warm scarf on a day like today (does that remind You of the Andy Williams rendition too? Thought so.)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

William has Very Grand friends who like to send Thank you Cards. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

FAIRY LIQUID! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

back gardens and slightly steamed up windows (not shown) because the kettle’s on. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

the quiet blue light in the Study upstairs – with a very collectible Ercol chair upholstered and refurbished by someone in the Village with a vintage blanket (very comfy and splendid for reading Coleridge – a large tome of which is nearby).

this is something that William found from an artist called Della Scales at Cockpit Arts in Deptford – stained glass is very elegant and also surprising, especially with an insert of a 1960s style Zoom ice lolly from Lyons MaidOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

ah. peaceful days. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

and a quiet sunday with a ticking clock in the kitchen and the Papers (actually printed material with the glossy sunday supplements).

delightful.
