The sun did finally come out and with the man flue subsiding I did manage to get out and take some pictures, including some of the cliff repairs by the park see http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop210/
Anyway while I was taking the pictures of the cliff repairs one of the workmen approached me asked me if I was the bloke that wrote the thanetonline blog, to which I obviously responded with a yes.
He said that I had taken some pictures of him and he didn’t like them being online, this is a first for me but I though he must have his reasons, so I explained to him that when I stopped putting up the long series of pictures at the end of last summer I got a lot of emails from people who couldn’t get out for a walk and as some of them were disabled, I now just took as many as I could and published them all up.
I went on to explain that this meant that I had thousands of pictures on the internet and while I would be happy to take the ones of him down, he would have to email me the internet address or addresses of the pictures and tell me roughly how far down the page they were.
Then he said, it’s the ones of the blockwork on the cliff wall I want you to take down there’s nothing wrong with it.
So I said, the last time I looked down there it didn’t have proper foundations and wasn’t tied to either the cliff or the supporting pillars.
He then said, do you mean you have been on the site and that that was trespassing.
I said to him, I had been on the site on many occasions and knew I was trespassing.
So he then said, right then we can get you for that, and walked off.
You really couldn’t make it up could you, as you can see from the pictures, even Goody Demolition the firm that did the vital heritage work on the Marina Restaurant were there working for the council see http://thanetonline.blogspot.com/search?q=goody
