Monsters on a beach

Sunday 19th February saw a few of us head down to th ecoast to fly some kites. There was much discussion about exactly where we should go. Should it be Greatstone, or Romney, or Lydd, or Lydd-on-Sea or Dungeness? In the end, we found a car park at somewhere called The Lade. And depending on who you speak to it is one of the above! But who cares, we had fun.

The weather wasn't brilliant, the sun did break through briefly. But for the most part, there was a good steady off-shore breeze. So we managed to put some colour into the sky and received many compliments from various passers by who stopped to look and take photos and videos.

For some reason, I don't think we've ever flown there before, but I can't think why not, as there are all the facilities we need, a small car park, but on road parking as well, toilets and a shop. Unfortunately the fish and chip shop nearby was closed, but I'm told the one in Greatstone was serving excellent produce.

The only minor drawback with the location is the proximity to London's major international airport - London Ashford - which used to be known as Lydd Airport when I was young. This meant that we had to restrict ourselves to no more than 100 feet off the ground. But with good flat ground for miles around and a steady breeze, this really wasn't a problem.

Here are some pictures from the day. You'll find more here

Next weekend it looks like we will be at Milton Creek Country Park in Sittingbourne if the weather is kind to us.
