We popped down to Seasalter near Whitstable yesterday. It felt quite mild when we left home but it was bitterly cold on the Kent coast. We had a picnic on the beach (yes we are mad...) and then spent some time beach combing....drift wood for the fire (I've squirrelled a few pieces aside for future craft projects), seaweed for the allotment (a great fertiliser, compost activator & mulch) and sea urchin fossils. We then popped along to Whitstable to browse the shops and warm up. Finished with fish & chips in the car as the sun went down.
Pebbles, Shells and Sand and a rare glint of Sunshine!
Sea Urchin Fossils and a piece of driftwood which I have claimed.
Looking out towards the exposed London Clay. I remember trudging through this as a kid with my brother & sister along the coast at Allhallows determined to get to the sea at low tide.
I couldn't resist this pretty teapot (£4 from the charity shop)
and this 5 piece china set (£2).
The cup is a different design to the plates & saucer but the colours and theme match well.
I just love the autumnal design especially the apple.
