Fishing ...

Bank holiday weekend and I spent another couple of days down in Dungeness on the Kent coast with fellow friends/blippers MatthewSteve and Jane. It was a beautiful, warm day with very little breeze. A stark contrast to our last visit in March when we were barely able to stand in the howling winds! 

This is such a unique location. Fishing boats, old wrecks, diggers, rusting machinery, beach sheds (many barely standing!) litter the beach; old cottages, a steam railway, old and new lighthouses and a nuclear power station are all within a short walking distance. A photographer's paradise! 

My blip today is one of the newer trawlers, tied up for the night on the beach, with a non-seafaring fisherman in the background (one of many on the beach this weekend for a fishing contest). 

We stayed at the same B&B again - so friendly and comfortable. The owner, Simon, offered us a glass of wine before very kindly dropping us down to the Pilot Inn so we could all enjoy a glass or two with our dinner! This time I went for the small cod and chips (learnt my lesson after ordering the medium last time, which was enormous!). Managed to fit in half of my dessert too.  Back to the B&B and a bottle of red to end the night!

Thanks to everyone for a great weekend :)
