All pictures taken: Ramsgate, Kent, England.

Camera: Panasonic DMC-TZ3.
Ramsgate must be the dog capital of England. I swear I've never seen so many pooches of all shapes, sizes and descriptions being taken for walks. T wondered if you could hire them. I wondered if there was a rule that you couldn't leave the house without taking a furry four-legged creature on a leash with you. Honestly, we felt a bit naked without one.
This beach (above) actually had a lifesafer sitting up in his own little lifesaver seat. Where did he think he was? Australia?
Interestingly, because Ramsgate is one of the most easterly points in England, it has its own meridian line and Mean Time, which is 5 minutes 41 seconds ahead of Greenwich Mean Time. You can check the current time here.
And finally, there's a bit of a Belgian influence in town (we enjoyed a small beer in the dubiously decorated bar on the right, which may well double as a burlesque dive in the evening, it had that kind of look about it) and an enormous amount of fish'n'chipperies. Sadly, my plan to enjoy fish'n'chips by the beach didn't eventuate... because we went to nearby Broadstairs instead... and come Sunday I didn't much feel like eating them at 11 in the morning. I guess that means I'll just have to go back...
