Ridiculous. That's the only word for it. Yesterday we spent the whole day expecting a snow shower, which never materialised. Today, after a stroll round Herne Bay, we sat on the beach at Whitstable to watch a beautiful sunset. What's wrong with this place - where's the horrible cold, miserable, depressing winter? Daft. Not the greatest picture, given that it was taken on the mobile phone, but it gives a flavour of the splendour of the view. And it was splendid.
