A Day Trip Around Kent Part Two With Some Shadows

Before and after photoshop.
This cottage is next to the beach at Grain.
The roses were lovely-with at least three colours on their petals.
A stormy Rochester High Street with pretty bunting.
Dover Ferry Port viewed from the car!
Some of the extensive grafitti on the white cliffs-chalk is so soft and easy to carve I suppose.
It provided some shadows for me.
Flints peeping out of the chalk.

There'll be seagulls over, the white cliffs of Dover, tomorrow, just you wait and see. It was dizzyingly high and slightly scary.
There were lots of wild flowers.

Dungeness was our last stop. We went for a beachcombing walk. I found little bones in fascinating shapes and bleached beautifully. One of them is a musical fishbone which I will show you tomorrow. Above is Derek Jarman's cottage, the garden still lovely. Dungeness is such a strange place and I would love to have a little cottage there and beach comb every day. As we walked on the beach we kept hearing the whistle of the steam trains that potter backwards and forwards between Dungeness and Hythe. We had fish and chips at the Pilot Inn before heading home. It was such a lovely day!
I could use these pictures to demonstrate triangles and rectangles.

While we were on the beach I remembered this film. I would really like to see it again as I can't remember it very well, but do remember enjoying it. Some of these photos contain shadows. For more shadows from around the world, visit HeyHarriet here.

Dungeness is just the weridest place isn't it. I found the atmosphere quite strange!

Lovely photos! Gave me a little trip down memory lane, as we used take the children to Broadstairs, when they were very small. I remember the scary feeling of standing on the top of those magnificent cliffs. Have a good week! Ros

I SO enjoyed your Shadow Shots today. The White Cliffs of Dover truly are white!! Love the shadows on the stoneface. And the roses trying to stand upright...must be a little wind? Is Dungeness where the crab comes from? So interesting. Have a great SSS day!

Absolutely beautiful!

Hey Harriet said...

What a stunning looking place! I wish I could go exploring there and visit Derek Jarman's cottage! Wow! Thanks for sharing your day trip. It looks quite cold there. It's probably warm this time of the year but for some reason it has a cold kind of vibe happening. Hope you have a super week Sarah :)

Hi, Sarah! It's great to be back in blogland again, and very much enjoying your views from/around Kent. I just love Kent--it is such a special and beautiful corner of England. I like how you take us off the beaten path. :o) Happy Days ((HUGS))

What a wonderful series of photos. I've only seen the cliffs of Dover once - from a distance ... and probably will never be back to get closer. Sigh.

KindredSpirit said...

i have been to the white cliffs and YES they are ridiculously high.

Liz said...

Great pictures! It looks like a beautiful place!

A lovely day trip it was. the rounded edges made me think that I had just seen a viewmaster disc from the old days.
