A Great Day Trip to Whitstable....

1st April 2018

This year is going toooo fast!!

I have spent three days with my gorgeous granddaughter, lots of fun and laughter....

Yesterday we went on the train to Whitstable in Kent and had a brilliant day....

Alba slept after her picnic on the train and we were able to walk along the main street, so many great little shops mostly independents....




....enjoyed watching the competition...


...a huge pile of oyster shells outside the Oyster Shack...


....the sun came out, wonderful clouds....


....walked to the harbour...


....Alba saw a little girl walking on the walk so , of course, she wanted to do the same!!!


All along the sea front were these converted fishermans huts with a view of the sea and the wonderful sound of waves breaking on the shingle, might give this a try when the weather is warmer...


....a constant queue at the oyster shack...


....we had fish and chips sitting outside watching the fishermen unloading their catch of whelks and oysters....


.....these huts had local craft stalls...


....later in the day and a cold wind....


...Alba enjoyed collecting shells and pebbles, her pockets were full as we left!!


Certainly a day to remember and we will definitely go back in the summer.
