Rainy saturday

Saturday evening and contemplating the first gin of the day. Mobile rings, showing a Norwegian caller. It’s the sytem technician and he needs access to the site. I’m the duty man so into the Nissan and off to south Thanet.

Crikey, it’s pouring down, by the lorryload. The timing’s all wrong and the lemmings from Westwood  Cross are heading home en masse. Gosh, there seemed to be about 50 million people on the move, all on the A254, in my way :o) So be it. Saturday in a rainy Thanet, that’s what we all seem to do these days. Shop at Westwood Cross (or Bluewater or the Metro Centre ad infinitum….all ghastly places).

Ramsgate Harbour on the other hand is proving remarkably peaceful and pleasant, even in the rain. The place is becoming more attractive and endearing with each visit…so far anyway.

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
