Walked on our first day along the beach front. Took in the sights and noted that the wall may go soon. After years it is to be redeveloped. But anyway still fun seeing the pictures.

How long is this going to stay like this....... Another EIGHT YEARS ! You could not make this up the goings on in the sorry state of the Pleasurama development behind the painted hoarding. Even the hoarding is showing signs of ageing.

We were based in Broadstairs for a few days, went to Ramsgate to see the museum in the harbour which we found very interesting, walked back along the Main sands promenade towards the Tunnels. We were very surprised to find the paintings on the wall...More
