On The Sands in the early 1900s, painting on the sundeck of the Pav today, nothing out of the ordinary


I skived off for a long lunch break today, a bit more watercolour painting

all a bit on the small side. Lots of layers, taking Mr Turners advice.

I am getting to the point where I think I am going to have to start painting something a bit more creative than just what I can see from where I happen to be sitting.

The high point of my visit to the Pav today one one of the Wetherspoons staff at the top or the external stairs asking people not to use them. He even had a voice like Dom Joly and for a moment I thought I had stumbled into an episode of Trigger Happy. My guess is he was a new worker and someone had done the equivalent of sending him to fetch a sky hook, long wait, tartan paint in the way of the classic rookie joke.

The bookshop was busy again today and for any dedicated followers this is the link to pictures of the books we put out   

Out and about today the weirdest thing was 
 this, two wosisnames on the horizon off Ramsgate, I do promise to get a better camera once I work out which one to get. My ancient Nikon P90 has a lot of zoom but not enough.


on to the historic photos which I think mostly date from between 1900 and 1910
