Here I am again, revealing myself in a pic. I’m gaining confidence as proved by the casually inclined head and the vacant smile or, more probably, I’m just getting used to it.
Last weekend I went camping on the coast (almost on the coast) nearby Dover, UK. It took me a 4 mile walk to get to the beach from the campsite where I inexpertly set my tent. Even though I had to cross congested roads with no sidewalks, it was worth the effort. That day I got by with sandwiches from breakfast to dinner, as a consequence I appear in the photo with a significant belly bulge, the so called “sandwich belly”.
St. Margaret’s at Cliffe is a three-part village situated between Deal and Dover in Kent, England. White cliffs aside, the main attraction is the South Foreland Lighthouse, a Victorian lighthouse used to warn ships approaching the bay, currently owned by the National Trust. Surrounded by a bucolic atmosphere and overlooking a sea horizon ultimately leading to the French coast, the lighthouse is real treasure. I stopped there for a cuppa and piece of apple pie.
While I hate the traditional British floral wallpaper, I truly enjoyed the retro atmosphere, the roaring 20’s gramophone music and the refreshing sea breeze blowing old lace curtains. What’s not to love about this full of character tea room? Wallpaper apart, I mean.
