So how’s your Bank Holiday been so far?

Dahlia

On Saturday we decided to face the torrential rain and go as planned to Rochester.  Two attractions were calling us: the shops (me) and a beer festival at The Cooper’s Arms (TLT and me, a little bit!).  We both got soaked, but the beer was good!

On Sunday the weather was, as promised, much better so we headed to the Sandwich Festival.  At the Dog Show we fell in love with a beautiful Gordon Setter bitch and TLT was tempted to rehome two 10 month old kittens.  Poor DeeDee!  If only she knew!

Then we ‘discovered’ the secret gardens at The Salutation.

We decided to walk out along the Stour to admire the boats and soon found ourselves on a public right of way crossing  the Royal St George’s golf course  http://www.royalstgeorges.com/ and came to this sign:

To the sea

Hurrah!  We were on the right track!  After another mile or so we were rewarded with this amazing sight of waves crashing on to the shingle and away in the distance we could make out the White Cliffs.  How lovely!

The knitting?  I’m making more tea cosies!
