When you live in London, escaping to the sea is occasionally essential. Whitstable is my current favourite sea fix of choice. It's about an hour away on the train, is just quaint enough, has good chazzas to rifle through and nice little pubs next to the beach, so you can tuck into raspberry wheat beer and local oysters whilst staring at the sea. There's even a vintage shop on the beach! Sanity saving. Here are some pictures I took on a trip a couple of weeks ago. I used the GC's camera, a Powershovel Harinezumi. (Or, 'the toy', as I like to call it. They're so silly and don't have a viewfinder or screen! Has anyone every used one of these before?
Fun to play around with, anyway.) Which other places do you Londoners visit when you
need to get away?
