We sold our holiday house beside the sea this week so after a busy couple of weekends we had so say bye bye. Very well done to James, Harvey and Matt who moved us out on the hottest day of the year !!!
Harvey and I had a final hurrah in the house and made the most of the wonderful weather to enjoy eating out and walking around this lovely town and beach. Milton was with us too.
I will miss this extraordinary view from the house. This picture was taken from the gate.We walked along to the little parade of restaurants nearest the house for lunch on the Saturday.I celebrated my 50th in the Italian restaurant so for old times sake, we had lunch there.These girls look happy.We sat outside, overlooking the marina.Pizza – yummy.This is the only royal harbour in England and it is beautiful and always a pleasure to walk around.I walked and Harvey cycled around the harbour, beside the beach and along the promenade.In the evening we went to Sandwich to see my cousin Hannah’s new house. This beautiful river is just behind them.Aunty Marion joined us for a stroll around Sandwich which is well worth a visit.Behind this wall is ‘The Salutation’, the house of Steph and Dom, well known to Gogglebox fans.Nice pad!
We had a lovely evening at Hannah’s and made the most of the weather by eating outside; Hannah made a delicious curry for me followed by fruit and vegan ice-cream. It was lovely.
Sunday was a stunning day with bright blue skies. It began hazy but that soon cleared but we were up and out as soon as we woke up to make the most of the day. We ate breakfast our in a cafe along the promenade; beans on toast for me.
There was a big motorbike event setting up along the seafront on the road leading to the port; we peered at it from above but didn’t go down.When the haze cleared, the sky was so blue. It was a perfect beach day.After a good walk we headed on to the sand and had a wonderful time swimming and walking along the main beach at Ramsgate. It was glorious and luckily we didn’t come across any jellyfish in the sea.We both enjoyed our swim very much.We eventually dragged ourselves away and in to our favourite place to eat; The Belgian Cafe.We got a booth – yay 🙂Vegan sausages and mash for me which was really good and so filling because of all the vegetables.One final potter about before heading home.
Final stop of the weekend was Revolution where Harvey BMXd and Oscar scootered and they had a great time. I did too, chatting to Hannah and Alex.
We also spent last weekend there but that was a lot more hard work as we had to sort everything out. We did have some fun too though and another lovely evening with Hannah and her family and Aunty Marion. We had supper at a fantastic Italian called Luigi’s at 3 The Quay, Sandwich, CT13 9EN. I highly recommend it and they were very accommodating to me and cooked me a vegan pasta dish which was excellent. We spent the rest of the evening at Aunty Marion’s.
I woke up early on my last morning in the Ramsgate house and made the most of the view. This was the view from my bedroom at about 7am.
We had a very busy day ahead of us so we began with a full English – vegan version for me -at one of the little cafes on the local parade.After a very long and busy day sorting everything out, it was time to say farewell. I will miss this beautiful Georgian house beside the sea but have plans for a different way of life in another town beside the sea.
I hope the new owners enjoy this house.
