a postcard from ... Whitstable


Having only just returned from a lovely holiday in France it feels a bit odd to be posting pictures of Whitstable, and from a month ago too.  So much for the immediacy of blogging!

Anyway, better late than never so here they are, looking all blue and seasidey, lovely Whitstable ...

  1. Hello Jeanne:
    There can be no better reason to be away from the Blogosphere than to have been enjoying yourself! You have obviously been having a wonderful time and we are so delighted about that.

    We have yet to get to Whitstable. Somehow it always seems to elude us and yet we are most interested to visit. Your delicious pictures serve to entice us there even more. And, the fresh fish....we can detect the ozone from here!

    1. The OH tucked into a whopper of a lobster as you can see! The restaurant was right on the beach and so had a great atmosphere. x

  5. Wow Jeanne that meal is a wopper! Was it yours and did you finish it all?!! There are some very evocative photos here especially the one with the blue doors. Exactly as I expected Whistable to look like. Now that I've had a 'virtual' break in Kent will I be treated to a trip around France next? Hope so!

    1. The OH enjoyed his huge lobster very much although it seemed more debris was left on his plate post-meal than before:-)! I, on the other hand had a decently 'dressed' crab.

      Yes, posts on France will appear intermittently over the coming weeks but not all in one go, my blog is becoming like a travelogue!! x

  10. Gosh your're getting around! I have a photograph of me aged two on the beach at Whitstable, but I've not been there since. Looks like I should go back!

    1. I almost called in on Francine as we passed her street on the way down to the seafront! I miss popping in to her lovely little shop at Troston here in Suffolk.

      Yes will definitely get in touch next time we are at the Margate flat. x

  15. Hello Jeanne,

    I just found your blog this morning, from Rosie.

    Lovely cheery photos to brighten up yet another rainy West Country Day! Your garden looks so wonderful. We have just taken on a neglected woodland garden and cottage in a similar state. I now know where to come for some inspiration!

    1. Thank you for your visit Jessica. Not much to write home about in my garden this year, I gave up with all the dodgy weather we had! I will pop over to yours very soon! x

  18. You can post as many pictures from Whitstable as you want as they're absolutely fantastic. So just keep them coming Jeanne. :)

    At the moment we're talking about going to England next summer and drive around by car. We haven't decided yet but everyone seems to be up for it. Now we just have to decide where to go during our stay. So much we would love to see but I guess it's better to just choose a couple of places and see it as a bonus if we manage more. :)

    Take care sweet Jeanne!♥

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog and for indulging me in my musings. I enjoy reading your comments and will reply, time and tide permitting, on this page... at some juncture ... which may be several days later ... oh to have more time to blog!

I love to visit you in return also.

Jeanne
