I went for a stroll yesterday afternoon with my Old friend D.B. We were on the shore of the North Kent coast at Sheerness on the Isle of Sheppey. It was a sunny afternoon which was the perfect antidote to what has been, a long, cold and grey winter.The sea was a calm as a duck pond and full of relected blue light. Even the Isle of Grain Power Station reflected in the River Medway at Funton Creek looked beautiful.
Here D.B. points to the 'Celestine', a ferry en route from London and bound for for Zeebrugge in Belgium.
Spring was in the air. The sun was warm. A young couple sat without coats on the sea wall, while a man to their right was painting the railings.
