The Garden of England

...is where I've been for a few days, visiting my Auntie in Ashford. I had a lovely time visiting Headcorn, Whitstable and the Factory Outlet and took lots of snaps with my new camera. There were plenty that I was disappointed with, but here are some I am brave enough to show you.

The obligatory postcards were bought here

Lovely quaint old streets

Moules Mariniere for lunch here...

...followed by a stroll around the harbour,

then along the beach.

...some washed-up old relic

aren't they pretty?

doughnuts to die for!!!

(He's not wrong!)

.....the end of a perfect day.

Back home there's work to be done, I'm having new windows fitted and furniture needs to be shifted beforehand. My craft room will be a no-go zone for the next week as I'm having the window partially bricked in. I'm dreading all the mess and chaos but it will be worth it to have some decent windows at last.
See you when it's all over.

Thanks for looking and all your comments.
