Sunday Ramble

Having just come from the Euroferries posting on The Big Blog see it does look as though Bonanza Express is being prepared for service, you can keep track of her at if you click on the “Last Position Received” you can plot her on the map, once she gets underway.

You can also keep an eye on the shipping at Ramsgate which is rather fun.

We also have the prospect of Preston Steam Museum with their considerable resources revitalising the maritime museum and restoring the long neglected steam tug Cervia.

Anyone who has been to Preston Steam Rally will know that when they talk of organising a program of events they really mean business click on the links for pictures and

The really attractive thing that we have to offer tourists in East Kent is our wealth of heritage, Ramsgate with its harbour, architecture parks and gardens is particularly well placed to benefit from this.

I will probably add to this ramble if I get a bit more time today.

I have published a few pictures from my copy of the Kentish Traveller, that I am preparing for reprint click on the link to look at them


    The picies of deal and dover are well boring to coin a phrase of the youf of today.

  2. Don do you think anyone would notice if I left the boring bits out of my publications?

  3. What a wonderful 'gizmo' the ship tracking device is! So 'Bonanza Express' is sitting in Gran Canaria still. Hopefully, we will be able to follow her movement to Ramsgate during the next two weeks?


Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
