July 2nd and still managing to dodge the rain, the path westwards is alongside golden sands.
I cannot comment on the art within Margate’s new art gallery. However, from walking past, I am able to say it seemed to have been built perilously close to the sea and to resemble a gigantic shed.
The tourist information nearby is in elegant early nineteenth century buildings from Margate’s genteel past when the aeroplane had not opened up the possibility of visiting resorts with more sunshine more easily.
As graffiti goes, I found the above among the more charming.
I walked on to Westgate on Sea, still hugging the coast. One feature of a walk like this is the ready availability of refreshments and toilets.
This would be an easy day trip by train from South London and the path continues from Birchington on Sea via Reculver, Herne Bay and Whitstable.
