Holiday Days out :part two

The weather turned out to be utterly fantastic so we packed ourselves off to Deal, on the Kent coast, on the way we stopped of in a small village called Walmer, a nice little spot by the sea. We naturally had a cuppa and made a purchase at the bakers ( well we were on holiday!) I would show you the massive Belgian bun we bought but it didn't last that long!

I forgot to take any photos in Deal!! It was sooo hot, I did manage a rum and raisin ice-cream though!

On our way back we stopped at Samphire Hoe (never heard of it but it was signposted so…) It's a natural haven for wildlife, flora and fauna, created from the chalky residue left over from excavating the channel tunnel. You take a side road and wait at the tunnel entrance, when your light goes green of you go, all a bit odd!

It was really rather lovely and a nice place to stop...

and of course have a cup of tea!


  1. Looks great! I must explore the part of the country! Ada :)

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed your days by the sea. A big hug!!!

  3. We love both but we visit Deal more often.

    I know what you mean about the stop/go system at Samphire - but always adds to the fun.
