Dengemarsh Desert

From Lydd we went down Denegemarsh road to the beach.
The red flags were flying on the range,so we had to cut the corner and save 3 miles.The shingle beach is the largest in Europe and possibly the second largest in the world.The area is the only desert in Britain (if you don't believe me look on the net.)
The beach shingle is very hard  to walk on and affect all sorts of usually uncomplaining muscles.After an hour and a half of this
(during which it rained)we arrived at the Britannia Pub and had excellent fresh fish and chips.It would have been nice to get a bus back,but we didn't.We walked across the nature reserve
(Britains oldest?)and dragging our heels ,eventually made it back for an ice cream in the village
10 miles 5 chaps dull and rain,then hot and sunny.
When the range flag has obvious bullet holes in,its worrying,so we worried a bit.
Lydd church the size indicates area prosperity (or smuggling)
These are my shingle-shoes and were a complete waste of time

The lighthouse seems to have a surprised expression.
The uploading of pictures of meals on social networking sites has been suggested as a psycological disorder
Marconi's radio shack,for cross channel radio tests,he pinched all his ideas from Tesla,who was not commerically adept,but an inventive genius.
We were prepared to pay £3 to go up this ,but it was closed.
One of the quarries ,now a lake
It never seemed to get any closer.

The path across the reserve.
Some of us are fitter than others.
