                                                                    Joss Bay


                                                              Cliff Near Margate

                                                             Margate from better days

Aother leaderless walk and down on numbers just 4 of us met up at Broadstairs on a very overcast day . With the ever present threat of rain we set off to walk to Margate . Due to the high tide we had forget our plan to walk along the beach and had to walk along the cliff tops. We soon passed Joss Bay and the North Foreland lighthouse . The bay looked inviting and there were a few brave people swimming . Then on pass Kingsgate where we managed to get down onto the beach . This was a more pleasant walk and we soon found a cafe for a quick cuppa . After a very short stop we followed the beach until we got to Margate . The town looks very sad and needs a major facelift so again we only stopped for 5 minutes to have our coffee . With the clouds getting darker by the minute we simply followed the cliff top path back to Broadstairs A very tiring 8 plus miles
