Destination Deal

September was spent by the sea.
White Cliffs and Dover Castle are in view.

 Take the A258 at the round about,

 passed Markwood in Walmer,

 and the old Royal Marine Barracks on the left to

our seafront flat

in the charming

 Conservation Area

of 16th

and 17th century


Deal's award winning high street

with many new businesses

is a walk away along familiar footpaths from

Walmer Castle. 

But, it's for the sea  

and its rumbling tumbling pebbles which its waves draw back

 and its bright bleached sentries which its fishermen tend

 and its quietness so quiet

that we return.

thanks to
 John Reeves and Matthew Arnold

Hi Shevaun, we go over at least twice a year for a UK fix. In the Spring we were in York and then the Autumn we were in Deal. Next year it's Devon in the Spring and Northumberland in the Fall. Hope to get to London for a mid winter break, too.
