Art, zoo and shopping bank holiday weekend pictures, Wingham Wildlife Park, Angela Malone exhibition in York Street Gallery Ramsgate, Summer Squall and some sort of Ramble.
Here are yesterdays pictures from my mobile phone https://plus.google.com/photos/103118335852639233427/albums/5916769625544012657 and here are Sunday’s pictures of
My youngest children start secondary school next week, so the weekend revolved around shopping and going to the zoo. In terms of local attractions
has developed into a considerable zoo with plenty of play areas for children of
various ages, so the £40 family ticket represents a reasonable value day out
for a family of four. Wingham
With these attraction we generally take a picnic lunch so I haven’t tried the café there.
I was fascinated by the capybara, which is the worlds larges rodent.
Personally I am not a zoo person, or for that matter a shopping person, with the exception of bookshops, caged animal and clothes and shoes and stuff isn’t my bag.The Oxfam Bookshop in Canterbury was closed because the floor had collapsed when we went last Thursday.
Back in Ramsgate the artist's impression of the latest plans for a development on the harbour slipways has appeared.
My apologies here I still haven't got around to looking at this one properly, as ever my main reservation being the unanswered question. Does the harbour need the slipways in roughly its existing size and form in order to continue to function properly as a harbour?
There is another key question here that relates to cafe, bar and residential development on Ramsgate's waterfront, which is something like, will it all continue to work without something else to do there? I guess I haven't got this one framed properly yet, the area used to function, firstly around the picturesque operation of fishing and commerce in the days of sail, later we had a funfair, swimming pool and plenty of one armed bandits, now there is a real sense of where do we go from here?
Just down the road in Margate we already have The Turner Contemporary and will soon have Dreamland, I guess I would be happier if senior councilor were buying up real estate in the Ramsgate waterfront area.
I am going to turn on anonymous for a bit and see what i get in the way of spam, it would be nice to think the massage had got through.
