Most of the acorns are on the ground now, and the ones still falling sound different as you hear them bouncing off the nearly bare branches and twigs, rather than pattering through the leaves. There aren't many cobwebs left either, and the walkers you meet are in fleeces and hats.

On the way back to the marina you often see ducks, sometimes in a row. These are the first seagulls in a row that I have seen on this stretch though...

One intent of putting the gallery here was to help regenerate the town through making it more of a destination for visitors, rather than simply a day out on the beach. I think the jury is still out on that. In the past few years there has been lots of retail development on the edge of the Thanet conurbation around Westwood Cross, meaning that town centre shops are rapidly reducing in number. The increased shopping traffic around what was already a bottleneck may also be a disincentive to visitors, judging by the miles of crawling traffic that we passed on our way home.
