Some old picture of Margate, Ramsgate and Deal, a new bookshop -possibly a ramble

if you stand on Ramsgate Sands and look toward the harbour the cliff beyond the harbour is whare Deal is.

Deal had a pier ages ago and has one now.

It has had a few bookshops over the years, but I don't ever remember it having a new Waterstone's type bookshop.

Anyway opening today The Deal Bookshop, which is actually an unbranded Waterstones

Deal seemed to have gone a bit upmarket on the book front when I visited yesterday, the picture above is of a display in Deal's Oxfam Bookshop.

Yesterday KCC levelled the pavement outside the bookshop in Ramsgate, this is how it looks today, our fault, we complained because someone tripped over it, it's always good to know your council tax is being spent on a quality job.

We ate in the Belgian Cafe this evening 

they seem have inverted the bar, I tried photographing it

Tried sketching it, I think this would work best if you drank something that resulted in you lying on the ceiling.

It seems the great cook Delia Smith has burnt her boats, books, wosisnames

Next a few pictures of Ramsgate earlier today

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
