Bye Bye Ramsgate

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.

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.

P1070355There 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.P1070358P1070361When the haze cleared, the sky was so blue.  It was a perfect beach day.P1070364P1070368After 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.P1070371P1070372We both enjoyed our swim very much.P1070374We eventually dragged ourselves away and in to our favourite place to eat; The Belgian Cafe.P1070382We got a booth – yay 🙂P1070379Vegan sausages and mash for me which was really good and so filling because of all the vegetables.P1070380One final potter about before heading home.P1070383P1070384P1070387

P1070388P1070391Final 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.P1070393

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.

IMG_3492We 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.IMG_3498After a very long and busy day sorting everything out, it was time to say farewell.  IMG_3507I will miss this beautiful Georgian house beside the sea but have plans for a different way of life in another town beside the sea.IMG_3515

I hope the new owners enjoy this house.





About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. 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 do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. 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. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
