Seaside Postcard 50: Centre of the Universe

Ramsate comic postcards
Ramsgate has clearly always been the centre of the known Universe. You can go everywhere from here! Perhaps that explains the mobile population... But you can get here from just about everywhere as well. And yes there's plenty to do while here, but we don't want to get too insular, do we?

Anyway, one of our multiple New Year's Resolutions is to take full advantage of the proximity of the outside World this year - day trips and weekends to France being high on the list. The ability to have an overseas jaunt without using up precious annual leave is a real plus, and there's a lot to do and see within a couple of hours' drive from the ferry ports. All we need now is the sea to stop going up and down quite so much...

Oh the bothersome sea - I believe that Lord Canute has a theory on that.
