Come and walk with me

Today, July 21st, is our 'Fête Nationale'. The Belgian equivalent of the American 4th of July and the French '14 Juillet'. So we are having the day off. Tomorrow we 'faisons le pont' (make the bridge) which means that we are having a four day long weekend.

On this special day I'm taking you for a walk along the seafront and the pier in Deal ... Just come this way ...

Fishing boats on the beach in Deal.

Lobster pots.


The seaview from these stately homes must be breathtaking.


Deal pier.


View from Deal pier looking towards the East and Ramsgate.


A sunny but windy morning.

Thank you for coming on this walk with me ... Want to see more?

Great photos, wish we could have walked with you!! Did you get to eat any lobsters, one of my favorite dishes. Enjoy your holiday.

Carolyn, How about a tour of Walmer castle?

Bob, No - didn't eat a whole lobster, although there was a nice chunk of claw in the fish soup I had on the first evening.

Dedene, Thank you. We had rain for the best part of the day so the 'défilé militaire' wasn't much fun to look at.

Nadege, Thanks! I do miss the Loire Valley ...

Gaynor, I like those cloud formations too and take so many photos of them that it is driving my friend crazy :)
