Rye Harbour

 I had never been to Rye Harbour. even as a child on various holidays in the area, we only ever went to Rye town, and I have been there several times since.  So I was really keen to visit  Rye Harbour.  The harbour is some distance from Rye itself, it being an area where the sea is receding.   There is a small village which we drove through, but the area is now mainly a bird sanctuary, and very flat.    This is the famous red-roofed hut - I think now used for storage. We couldn't find much information about it, but Ann assured us it was famous! Where we had the most delicious lunch.    More soon.


 Dungeness is a photographer's dream - there is so much to photograph there, from plants, trains, boats and lots of rusty things!    The following are just a few of the photographs I took.   All three of us came home with over 500 photographs each! More to follow

Camber Sands and Dungeness

 We left Hastings after lunch to drive to Camber Sands Holiday Park where we had booked a caravan.  We quickly made ourselves at home.  The next morning we drove the fairly short distance along the coast to Dungeness.   We had a short walk around the old lighthouse and then made our way to the cafe for morning coffee and to pick up some sandwiches for our lunch.  In the foreground is the old power station which is now not functioning and will be dismantled within five years.   You can see the newer power station in the distance behind the power lines.   Some of the flowers we saw growing nearby.
