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.

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.

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however due to the unacceptable nuisance this use caused to local residents it is understood that its licence was revoked.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.

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

Skinny latte

I thought I would show you my favorite past time, as you can see I enjoy a skinny latte! One of my favorite places is Cafe Latino in Mortimer Street; they serve nice food as well if your passing!

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!!

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!

This colourful welcome can be found at Kings Road Infant school.... I don't know but would assume it has been reproduced based on a child's painting.... Isn't it great!

Beach House

The Heron....

This is another pub which was used as part of the first season of Little Britain... There was a sketch where Vicky Pollard was trying to buy drinks and produced some ID which was a hand drawn child's picture... Isn't it great to live somewhere which is now part of 'cult TV comedy'!

I was surprised to find this statue, it was in the grounds of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart R.C Church in Clarence Road.

Elvis Is In The Building!

Do you know how long arcades have been around? How long we have visited them whilst enjoying our holidays by the sea? I have no idea, but I do know that when it's raining and it's holiday time, the arcades remain buzzing.... Can you resist?

Royal Oak

The Royal Oak used to be a popular public house for the younger generation of Herne Bay, but it has been closed for quite some time, another victim of the credit crunch.

Colemans All Shoes....

If you visit Herne Bay and arrive by car, you surely cannot miss Colemans Allshoes... The fact it is located on the Canterbury road at the junction of one of the main roundabouts into Herne Bay obviously helps....

For all your outdoor clothing needs, a visit to Colemans is just the job....

Garden Fun...

It never amazes me the things you see in peoples front gardens.... this little piggy doesn't appear to be on his way to market though!

This photo has been taken from my bedroom window, and is of Herne Bay. Snow has been creating a lot of chaos in the south-east, resulting in many schools closing and even rail links being cancelled too.
