More Margate from the back

Following on from may last post, pictures of dear old Margitt. Here be some more.

Margate harbour arm, home to two small but busy bars. The Lighthouse and the Harbour Arms. The last two weekends have seen an MOB event. One resulted in a broken back and the other a fatality. There’s a moral there somewhere.

A wider perspective of the ‘harbour arm of death’…………………

A couple of pics from the ‘old town’ and the clear as clear can be signs to say no parking on the launching ramp dutifully ignored by those wott know better.

An example of the ‘posh new shops’ attracted to the hipster paradise that is Margate, and the properties immediately adjacent to it. Bursts the bubble a bit.

Not been? Worth a look if you’re in the vicinity. Allatsea’s claim to celebrity fame? Neat;y spilling coffer on Grayson Perry’s trousers. At least it wasn’t his frock.

Dreamland from afar in the ‘off’ season.

Just spoken to drunky nunky and drunky nunky is living up to his name this evening. Despite me asking him to call me prior to him doing the annual ‘rod the drains’ palarver at 143 he didn’t. Result, our kind but a bit lacking on the practical front Phil did it, without supervison and guidance. The drain rod parted with the ‘business end’ left trapped a dozen metres beyond recovery providing a near perfect drain blocker. Effing hell, that’s going to be ¬†expensive to sort. Deep gloom.

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.
