Ramsgate and Margate Harbour photos
A bit of a wet day off today and back to work tomorrow. According to the BBC I seem to be guilty of Tsundoku Here is the link fortunately they mostly go somewhere Here is the link
I went to write the blog starting with finding a few old pictures of both harbours but seem to have drifted off into looking at the pictures
Anyway I'll publish the post and if I think of anything to say I will add it.
