... trio. And it certainly was prettier than Margate (which reminded us a bit of Timaru). From here we walked to Ramsgate, on the recommendation of our B&B lady. A good walk, but she grossly underquoted the distance and the time it would take. But we had a good meal at the Belgian Cafe, a popular local hangout.

At 5pm, we left for Canterbury. It was a nice evening for a drive: fluffy pink clouds and the golden hour on the fields. There was a fair amount of traffic at first but this did not last too long. We arrived Canterbury at 6:30pm, just as planned. We dined at Wagamama (nummers) then went ...
