Julie and I took a stroll along the Oare Creek, near Faversham last weekend. We had a couple of errands to do in the area, but the real reason we made the journey was that it offered a chance for some overdue R&R.

While we were there, I took these shots. The one of the Hollowshore Cruising Club burgee seems particularly significant, as this is the last winter it will grace the old shed that’s been the club’s home for 50 years.

I can’t say where we’re moving, as the negotiations had not been completed when I last spoke with the Commodore, but it seems likely that we’ll have better facilities in future. Sill, I will miss the old clubhouse, not least because it’s picture window and balcony offer what I consider to be one of the best views in Kent.
