Garden centres make a nice change & we seem to have spent much money at them lately trying to fill our 3 main flower beds with perennials to make them easier to maintain than in the past when we used to grow & plant out many bedding plants each year.

Just a drive in some parts of Kent without getting out of the car will be a pleasant way to pass the time in future.

Kent's a weird place with extremes of: on one hand lovely countryside & on the other  some very densely populated areas.

@pittstop have you been to Samphire Hoe? We arranged that as a meeting place for the UK International meet it was amazing. 

Have you been to Dungeness we had a week there it was a very strange but beautiful place.

I also really enjoyed a week at St Margarets at Cliff just have to watch the mobile network your phone connects to.

My brother went to The Royal Duke of York Military School, first few terms Mum and I went down with him at the start and end of term but it wasn't long before he didn't want his Mum and little Sis there.

Dungeness is a favourite of my wife's.

She loves the rather spooky emptiness of the place.

It also brings back memories for her of summer holidays spent in a "shack" there.

Not been to Samphire Ho. Must try it sometime.

I am lucky enough to live 30 minutes walk along the beach from Dungeness

My wife and I certainly feel extremely fortunate to have found a "forever" house here after moving down from SE London some 14 years ago....certainly couldn't cope with all that traffic and doing battle with the South Circular daily anymore !!

Dungeness is certainly a magical place...once described by Chris Evans on his radio show after a weekend visit as.."looking like a giant childs bedroom floor, with little houses, a power station and a model railway running through it" !!

We've seen a number of celebrity visitors walking and in the "Pilot" pub...the BEST fish and chips anywhere...including Dick and Dom after filming at the power station, the cast of Countryfile, Michael Portillo, Sandy Toksvig, Vic Reeves and family and separately..Bob Mortimer and clan.
It's a popular place to be sure !!

You are lucky being in that area.. 

For us: Being in the NW part of Kent means that Dungeness is up to a 1.5 hr drive for us.

That said when we do visit we still think it worth the trip & the drive across Kent; hopefully top down; is a good day out.

Totally agree but at least we have the Vaccine and I do think the NHS are rolling out the jabs very quickly.
