Taken at St. Leonards back in October 2013
And there was not a soul in sight…
Back in September 2013 we decided to go to Herne Bay in Kent… as as we strolled along the promenade as the sun was setting… we took this picture… as there was nobody in sight. It is not often you get to take a shot where there is nobody in sight.. this was just one of those times.
Under the pier…
Taken at St Leonards, Near Hastings last night.. just as the wind started to blow.. Now if I was brave enough I would love to go down and see how rough it will be during the high winds were are supposed to experience tonight. But I’m not.. so I will be battening down the hatches and sticking head under duvet.
Rocks and waves…
Last night the rain held off and we took a drive to Folkestone.. to see if we could capture another sunset.. Unfortunately for us, the sunset was not over the water this time of year.. and even though we were slightly disappointed at not being able to capture a sunset over the water, it didn’t stop us taking some good shots.
As you walk along the Stade you come to a piece of sandy beach at the end.. where once stood a cafe is now apartments.. which I would love to live in.. just to see the different changes of the sea and the storms.
The above picture shows the man made underground caves… I have many a childhood memory of playing in those caves and as the tide rolled in we would move across to the next cave … Folkestone was one of my dad’s favourite places to visit.. and I can remember him making his tea on his little camping stove and even cooking sausages for the rolls.
Mind you back in those days.. the dogs were allowed on the beach.. and our dog would love to run and swim in the water.. Trixie used to enjoy her days at the beach.. unfortunately now.. dogs are banned from beaches for the period of May – September.. but I have visions of how much Stewie and Dumpling would love swimming in that sea.

Looking out to sea…
The above shot is taken from the top of Walmer Castle looking out to the sea.. the beach is rugged and and definitely not commercialised. It was an ideal place to allow doggies to have a paddle and as yesterday was as windy as hell, an ideal place to fly a kite.
Hubby took the above photo, using the cannon as his tripod.. I just love the way the cannon looks imposing and the composition of this shot..
What we both noticed is the colour of the water.. it was turquoise and looked very inviting.
We will definitely be returning to Walmer Castle again.. and hopefully this time we will have a stroll along the beach.
