LYMPNE - FOLKESTONE BIKE RIDE

Just 4 of us and 13 miles along the prom,VIDEO of another biker's ride.
lots of silly art things going on in Folkestone and a TV presence owing to immigrants being housed in an Hotel,on which there was more "art"in the shape of mountaineers tents suspended from the top tower.
Lunch,excellent(9/10)fish and chips at the SMOKEHOUSE RESTAURANT cheerful, efficient and attractive staff.It rained while we dined ,then the sun came out.We met The UKIP candidate who was going to do an interview for the news.Ice cream and then a mug of tea at the RHDR ststion at Hythe
I have cramp in my thigh,that'll teach me to go cycling.

Crab and Winkle

Congregating on the train  we got off at Whitstable ,the northern end of the world's oldest railway line,now a footpath,cycle track instead.A misty start ,so quite good for walking,and encounter with a Chinoise student who practiced his Engrish on us and went away scratching his head meatphorically.
A nice walk with sun,but not too hot,emerging at St Thomas hill we caught the 4X bus back to Whitstable,and got off in the town and walked up to the station.
There were 7 of us and we did 7 miles ,so thats 49 man-miles.

THIS is a video, speeded up, of the bike path
and THIS is 20 seconds worth of the railway in 1950
and THIS is some amateur film of the railway.


This Cyclist fell foul of a witch,who turned him to steel.


At least the cows allow the bull a post coital snooze which is more than I've ever had.


No its this way,no its not,its over there,     how are my stocks and shares doing?

Hucking Woodlands Trust

The last few months seem to have been very hit and miss with our walks with a lot cancelled due to weather or lack of bods
This week was an exception in we had a full house of six who met up at Hucking Woodland Trust car park on a slightly overcast day and following days of heavy rain very muddy underfoot
We set of by crossing the road and into the fields full of friendly sheep
After heading North through the fields we followed the footpath that then led us up the first of many steep hills . Basically followed the footpaths to four acres farm, Bixnor and up even more steep hills back to Hucking . The orchards we full of fruit already for harvesting I guess in the next few days
