We're having a heatwave

Today is the 1st October and it is 86F. The hottest October day since records began. Autumn posts can wait ... lets go to the seaside!

Today in Whitstable was the perfect day for crabbing

Messing about in boats

Al fresco eating

Or just sitting back and enjoying the view

Whitstable is a funky kind of seaside town. With lots of independent shops - it's great for interiors.

Golden arch anyone?

Don't you just love these planted containers along the sea front?

Intriguing alleyways lead down to the beach

Where you find the shabby chicest beach huts imaginable

And pretty rows of pastel painted houses

Our weather has gone completely barking! 
After a cold, wet summer, today was a real bonus.

I hope the sun is shining on you this weekend xx


  1. Sure looks like a wonderful day to be out and about. Enjoy one last week. We're cold today but suppose to get back in the low 70's mid week for a few day.

  2. oh.. how your post brings back many happy memories,growing up in England and visiting the seaside for holidays once a year. Love Beach huts, I don't know why they are so beautiful. Enjoy your lovely weather. We are just into Spring here. xx

  3. Oh lucky lucky you.

    We in the formerly sunny south,continue on shivering and wearing wellies.

    The world has gone mad.

    Glad to see you enjoying the madness:)
