Whitstable To Herne Bay 2nd May 2008
Our normal walk was cancelled earlier in the week because of torrential rain and 6 of us met up on the east side of Whitstable on a cloudy day and proceeded to walk to Herne Bay.
Initially we kept to the top of the cliffs passing the gaily coloured beach huts below us. Before long the sun shone making the walk all that more enjoyable.
Following the path we cut down to the path along side the beach. The tide was in with a gentle flat sea at about high tide. Keeping to this path we passed the site of a number of "mobile homes " and a skate board area .
By the time we got to Hampton pier the day was as good as any summer day we could hope for. We passed the area of the arcades to roughly the clock tower where we diverted into the area of the town to search out a cake shop for one of our party. Then back for a short distance through the town before diverting back to the sea front. Here we sought out a sea front cafe for a coffee stop . When we left we treated ourselves to a bag of chips and lowered the tone of the area by eating them as we walked along the sea front back in the direction of where we left the cars. Unfortunately this was interupted but a longish downpour . Eventually arriving back at the cars slightly wet but pleasantly tired.
