Keep Your Nakedness OFF This Beach!

Apparently somewhere in Herne Bay there is a Naturist beach....
but it's not here on the route from Hampton to Whitstable!

Where's Your Bin.....

These bins can be found near the sailing club at Hampton. I find it interesting that the only way they differentiate between contents is to write on the lid... I wonder how much 'non glass' waste gets put in the bin marked 'glass only' =0)

Blossom....

I love this time of year when the blossom is on the trees =0)
Having said that, it's a bugger to clear up when it starts to fall =0(. This blossom is on the apple tree in my back garden. I hope that I'll have a good crop of apples this year.

Where did you get that hat!

I couldn't resist taking this photo, they had just come out of the Kings Hall, not sure what they had been doing but it looked like they had enjoyed themselves!

Street name

As the sign says Victoria Park sounds very royal, I often wonder who named the roads in Herne Bay!

Stop me and buy one...

Hopefully when the weather gets warmer there will be more customers for this Ice Cream vendor...

Sandcastles

Texture....


I love monkey puzzle trees and spotted on in a garden in Fleetwood Avenue. The texture of these trees IMO is amazing =o)

Lonely Bench!

Photographing empty benches and chairs is actually one of my favorite subjects... Yes I know I am a sad lonely individual.... Haha
I love this picture!

How Did That Get There?


While out walking along Station Road, I noticed that someone has managed to hook a bike tyre over the sign to the station! This left me wondering whether someone had to walk home, or got caught out playing 'hoopla'!

Tides Out....


These boats can be found down by Neptune's arm, behind the clock tower. They always seem to be there when I walk by, and today when I passed by there was a seriously strong odour that was not in the least bit pleasant.... It spoilt my walk, so Canterbury City Council needs to sort out the sewers!

Enjoying The Sunshine


As mentioned in an earlier post, Herne Bay has more than its fair share of elderly people... However it is nice to see them out and about enjoying the gardens by the clock tower on a sunny day like today =0)

Waiting for Summer....


I love the changing seasons and the impact this has on the trees arounds us... This grand tree bare of its leaves stands outside Herne Bay Station.... I suspect when filled with leaves it stands tall and glorious.... Maybe I'll remember to photograph it again later this year =0)

If you are looking for a bike then this is the shop for you, it has a large variety of bikes to choose from and is in Mortimer Street.

Which Supermarket?

These shopping trolleys were spotted abandoned by Herne Bay train station... No wonder the supermarkets make us use trolley coins or pound coins to use their shopping collection vessels when irresponsible people clearly have no respect for other peoples property.... Less they forget the crack-head prices we're paying for food helps pay for these trolleys!

Blue Boat

While I was out walking making the most of the recent sunny weather, I spotted this blue boat, it had been left on the beach...

I'm A Dingle Dangle Scarecrow.....

I spotted this quirky scarecrow in the garden of a local nursery... Not sure he's scarey enough to actually frighten away any birds.... Not so sure about the children though =0)

Riggings Restaurant

The restaurant is in East Street and offers local produce its speciality is fish!

Tuesday, 10 March 2009

Tables and Chairs....

With summer fast approaching and fingers crossed, warmer weather winging its way to us... this picture of empty tables and chairs in the bandstand will be a longed for phenomenon!

Gas Tanks

This is a moody photo of the gas storage tanks which are on Sea Street, opposite Hampton School.

Cup Of Tea In The Memorial Park... Or NOT!


Looks like we won't be enjoying refreshments in the park this summer, unless someone opens up the cafe.... Fingers crossed huh!

Enjoying the sun

I couldn't resist taking this photo, the lady was making the most of the sun while waiting for a bus at Dollies Corner in Beltinge!

CAREFUL COFFIN DODGERS ON THE MOVE!
Herne Bay has the second largest number of old peoples homes in England.... This is second to Hastings... I guess if I have my facts wrong, someone will tell me =0(

Theme Day - Glass

Today is the Daily Photo theme day. I’m sure I’m not the only one to choose a stained glass window to fit the theme, this one is in East Street!

Pure Madness.....

I was totally shocked to see these young people jumping, sliding and riding bikes on the frozen pond in the memorial park! This to me is the epitome of stupidness!

Bay Card launch!

Today I spotted these two gentlemen in Mortimer Street at the launch of the new Bay Card. The idea of the Bay Card is to encourage people to shop locally and receive discount hopefully this will improve the towns economy, 130 businesses have signed up to the scheme so far!

There For The Taking....

As I wandered along Tyndale Park I came across this scooter, simply laying on the pavement waiting to be ridden away!

Lovely garden

This garden is in the grounds of a building at the rear of a car park in Market Street. I think the building is used by the council, such a shame it is hidden away.

Are Billboards Good Advertising Or....

Simply something that distracts drivers on their way???

These specimens can be found in Hampton.

Pathway

I often use this pathway when I walk down to the shops, it is beside Christ church and opposite the council offices and swimming pool.

Washing....

Do you sort your washing into colours? I love this line of autumn coloured clothes.... Wish it was mind =0)

This is the Jade Garden Chinese Restaurant in william Street where there was a fire on January 24th. The flats and restaurant have have been badly damaged, but at least no one was hurt.

The Old Bakery

This is the house sign for the 'old bakery' located in Stanley Road. I nearly purchased this tiny detached house back in 1997.

Art Deco

This building was originally built in early to mid twentieth century possibly as a shop and workshop. In the 1950's part of the site was used as a fitter's workshop. More recently in 1984 planning permission was granted to use part of the site as a snooker hall and in 1993 the snooker hall was extended. In 1994 the snooker hall was again extended onto the first floor. The snooker hall closed in 1997, the rear of the building was subsequently used as a night-club, however due to the unacceptable nuisance this use caused to local residents it is understood that its licence was revoked. The building has remained unoccupied since the club closed. It has recently been converted into eight flats.

Love That Cat!

This little fella came to say hello as we walked along Fleetwood Avenue... How cute is he?

All lit up!

We have posted a photo of the clock tower before, but I liked this one as its taken at night when the clock is all lit up!

Bag 'O Bricks

I spotted these bags of builders bricks outside the builders merchants at Hampton... I am surprised no one has tried to take the contents away! Mind you, you'd need to be pretty strong to carry one of these away!!!

Umbrella for two

It was a good job this umbrella was big enough for two, they certainly needed it with all the rain we have been having lately.

Gingerbread Houses


I was looking at the houses along Beltinge Hill when I noticed the fascia's on a select row of houses... Don't you think this looks like icing... maybe from the Gingerbread house LOL

Pampas Grass.....


I love the look of Pampas grass and I spotted it growing near the Heron Pub.... As much as I like it, I have to confess I don't really see the point of it!!

Canoeing

Its good to see people making the most of the sunshine and good weather when they can, personally I can't wait for the summer to come!
