I have never understood why people fish, but it looks very relaxing, and a good way to sit and reflect, even if it is cold.
I hope he caught some fish!

This is a very intresting place to visit I found out the information below from the Internet:-

Herne Bay Museum is Open: Monday - Saturday, 10am - 4pm. Also Sundays in July and August 1pm - 4pm. Closed on Good Friday and part of Christmas week. Free admission.
This bright and modern museum highlights the history of the Victorian seaside resort of Herne Bay and its surrounding area. Themes include seaside holidays and attractions, the town's piers and the development of the resort. Find out about the town's famous clock tower (once the tallest in the country) and have your photo taken through a traditional seaside Aunt Sally!

Exciting finds from the nearby Roman fort and Saxon church of Reculver are also on display, as are important fossils from the local area, including mammoth tusks. Fossilised sharks teeth can be discovered by searching through a hands-on sorting tray, a very popular activity with children.

Also on display is a prototype of the famous Barnes Wallis bouncing bomb from the Second World War. These weapons used in the historic Dambuster raids were tested off Reculver. Find out more in the Dambuster audio-visual.

These are some steps leading down to Central Parade, on the left are some amusement arcades, where people like to spend time playing on the machines, spending thier money. You can just see the end of the pier in the distance.

Spend spend spend....

With the Christmas indulgence carefully under wraps, the shops continue to entice us with their fabulous offers....
What always surprises me with the sales is the fact they can offer 50% or more off the selling price which suggests the goods were clearly over priced to start with! Bah Humbug me thinks!

Now I know you're still recovering from over indulgence during the festive season, but when I spotted these colourful jars of yummy sweets I could hardly contain myself =0)
I remember when I was growing up you would see these jars of sweets in all of the corner/paper shops.... lusting after a quarter of your favorites.... I don't remember when they disappeared from the shops - no doubt something to do with hygiene! But I am aware they have been making a comeback for some time now.... So its delightful to see that when wandering along the high street in Herne Bay you can turn back the clock and enjoy a quarter of your favs....

Gargoyles To You...

This cute little fellow can be found sitting about a house on Bank Street... There is an interesting history attached to the house that owns the creature. You can see the actual house if you scroll back to 14th November, however the history of this property is yet to be shared!

Why do people feel the need to dump rubbish, I spotted this next to the recycling bins in the william street car park, whoever dumped it must have used their car so why didn't they just take it to the tip?

So Long Farewell......

OK, so I expect you're thinking I'm going to say cheerio to 2008 and hello to 2009... well I'm not... I know I should but I feel this is an appropriate entry to say a fond farewell to a family institution...
Yes its Woolworths.... Like many of my friends I started my working life behind a counter in Woolies... So I say it here.... Goodbye fair Woolworths!
