Some progress with the painting of Ramsgate, the drawing of Margate and some thoughts on the Roller Skating Rink at Margate’s Dreamland.

Here is the painting of Ramsgate from The Oak Hotel, pretty much finished, my thanks to the staff there, who were so charming I will paint one from there towards the Clock House.

Here is the sketch from the Sands Hotel, I did smudge the Ferris Wheel a bit in my endeavours to produce an optical illusion with it, at least the optical illusion seems to have worked.

My thanks to the staff there who were utterly charming, the Sands Hotel in Margate is very civilised, I could almost have been at the club, apart from the view of course, much better than Ironmonger Row. 

I tried out the roller skating rink in Margate Dreamland today and found it very pleasant indeed, my thanks to the staff there who were utterly charming.

Excellent music, mostly 60s and 70s, nice smooth floor, good quality hire skates, really nothing more that one could ask for from a roller rink. Sorry the picture of me skating around the rink is a little blurry, this is because I am reluctant to put sharp pictures of me enjoying myself online.

As Weatherspoon’s are soon to open in Ramsgate we ate in the Mechanical Elephant and found it very pleasant indeed, my thanks to the staff there who were utterly charming.

Here are some pictures of Margate that I took today.
