Farewell Ramsgate

I have had a truly splendid weekend.  I was treated to a day with my sisters on Saturday which we spent at the Spa hotel in Tunbridge Wells.  It was so lovely to see them.  From there I collected Lara and Harvey and we went to Ramsgate.  It was fantastic to wake up there this morning, especially knowing the plan was to have a long walk and the forecast was for sunshine.

We checked the tide times and were on the pavement by 9 am as we wanted to walk round to Broadstairs on the beach, for which we needed low tide.   Unfortunately the tide came in fast and very high so we did the cliff top walk instead, which was wonderful.
 The sea was very lively today which I love, I find it so exhilarating.
   I walked with some delightful company; Keven, Lara and Harvey.
    
    None of us had breakfasted so we stopped in Broadstairs for brunch.
  Beans on a jacket potato and black coffee at The Old Curiosity Shop.  We then set off for Margate, along the coastal route.
  Cabbages !  
    Kingsgate Castle. 
    My favourite of all the bays and beaches – Botany Bay.
    
    Walpole Bay.
  Finally at Margate. That sky was so blue today.  We were very tired so tea and a late lunch were next on the agenda at The Cupcake Cafe in the Old Town in Margate.
    There was nothing hearty and animal free so I dove in to cheese on toast.  I felt guilty but it was delicious.
  After walking about 12 miles we decided we needed cake too.  Raspberry and coconut which was very enjoyable if not a bit too sweet.
  We all felt quite weary and so got a bus back to Ramsgate.Everyone helped pack up amd that was it, my last trip to Ramsgate for quite a long time (if all goes according to plan). I felt very sad to go as I am very fond of visiting Thanet.
 
What a wonderful weekend I had. Fantastic company, some pampering, relaxing and a very long walk in the sunshine. I could do it all again.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
