Impromptu ride out for one

When considering how best to spend the last day of my 10 days off from work, I find myself doing exactly what Iíve done for a majority of the last 9 days off... a ride out!

Iím based in Kent, (known as the garden of England) so there are no shortage of stunning roads on my doorstep, but today I needed to see the sea so I headed for Whitstable... in a none direct kind of way... is there another way!

Is there a better means of spending your last day before heading back to the reality of work?!

A few pics... Canterbury, poppies, The Forge @ Whitstable for Fish & Chips, a coffee and my new bird

Great pics.
No question, your new bird is a real head turner and the added benefit of not needing a passenger seat...

I had a horrible thought that the "bird" might be a seagull (putting together Whitstable and Fish & Chips)Ö Thank goodness it wasn't

Just a little add on to todayís adventure...

Somehow whilst heading back home from Whitstable I managed to detour in the wrong direction, due south and ended up on another coast in the form of Camber Sands. The roads enroute were great and as a destination it was an ideal spot to take onboard yet more coffee with a view.

That's reminded me I haven't ridden down that way for a few years... My favourite is a ride down to Hythe, then Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch Railway to Dungeness and back, then on to Rye (via Camber) before heading back home... Love the Kent - Sussex marsh roads

Nice views, always good to have the sea in a picture. Also really like that helmet.
