a sunny afternoon in Whitstable...










We spent a sunny Saturday afternoon in the nearby-ish harbour town of Whitstable, Kent.

Whitstable is a nice place to spend a few hours. The bustling high street is full of independent shops and charity shops, there was even a tiny brocante being held in the village hall.

It seemed everyone else had swarmed into the tiny town too, so we bought some fish and chips and escaped to the relative peace of the pebble beach. We found a bench suitably placed with a view out to sea and were even left alone by the resident seagulls. I'm always amazed by the huge piles of oyster shells decorating the shore, the local restaurants must sell thousands!

This was Mollie's first visit to the seaside and she wasn't overly keen… she couldn't quite get the hang of walking along the pebble beach, and she really wasn't that fond of the icy sea either!
