Beside the sea we wanted to be so, to the sea we headed. The sun was on our side and it hung around with all the gleaming warmth of a perfect Spring day. Margate was our destination and it was just marvellous.
Isn't it curious what catches our eyes when we are visiting a a place for the first time? The interesting little details that inspire, delight and beguile us into wanting to capture snippets of sights to look back when we get back home?
People and their preconceptions based on misconceptions may snigger and guffaw at our destination (many did in fact). More fool them! Margate is a place shimmering with energy. The sort of energy that you get in a place resuscitated by the verve of passionate entrepreneurs.
Aside from what the trend hunters will undoubtedly report, Margate is also a treasure trove of sights for the more gentle observer. Those that have never lost their sense of wonder and find magic in the mundane, will find plenty to marvel at here.
Margate should be on your summer destination lists. Go! Just GO!
“Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop. And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard.” From Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami.
