Well hello my lovelies! It`s that time of year again, when we put down our empty cocktail glasses, put on a scarf, and retreat into the indoors to spend quality time with our photo collections. Mother nature may be telling us to go fuck ourselves with every falling leaf but we have scarves and photos to prevent us from falling into seasonal depression. Right? Right?

|Bad photoshopping notwithstanding, here am I in place of those two "ladies".|
Quite a lot has changed at the Mermaid. I'll be more suspicious of that plaster and beam look from now on - I think I preferred the original bricks.
Had a hard time matching this one with current reality so I thought it wasn't Ramsgate - but upon review, it is the same. Look at all those smartly dressed folks.
Loved Ramsgate. There's a really nice patina on everything there.
Note to the current boat owners in Ramsgate - need more flags. Otherwise everything looks pretty good.
|No boats today?|
Yep. Went to Whitstable. Saw the sights, got poisoned (Neil knocked a couple days off his holiday in favour of extreme illness. To each his own).
And of course, we remember the wonderful discovery of the Kings Arms (see here, March 2011). Since we were in the neighbourhood again, we had to do a re-do.

Photo-tourism! Do it!
