Busy, busy, busy!

Monday at the Margate seaside was horribly cold and windy. At least my team (18th in the league) managed to grab a hard earned point in a 2-2 draw away to the team 3rd in our League in front of 747 fairly frozen fans.

First view out of the railway station was the beach where, despite the cold wind, small children were making sandcastles and so on. They were dressed as for an expedition to the North Pole however.

A few decent beers were had before and after the game and also in the Margate FC clubhouse bar, which sold proper Shepherd Neame Masterbrew bitter, albeit in plastic glasses as it was match day.

On Sunday I had cycled over to my former drinking den, the Bell Inn at Golden Green, where I caught up with the usual suspects, friends for many years before I migrated to warmer climes.

Today it was a trip to the south coast at Eastbourne, again visiting. There was a glimmer of sunshine! Some very nice Long Man Brewery ale and, faced with a 45 minute wait for a meal at an eatery at Eastbourne marina that shall remain nameless, we opted for a selection from the local fish and chip shop.

That was of such quantity that I may not have to eat again until Friday!

Tomorrow it will be time to catch up with more friends and a probable pub crawl of Carshalton (south London) then Thursday it’s back home to the warm. Or perhaps not, given the sort-term weather forecast for that part of the world!

I will try to take some pictures of our trip tomorrow.
