It was a beutiful morning here with very clear ble skies so I went up to the hills to get a picture of Morecambe Bay and the hills in Cumbria. Alas the sun was only shining over Garstang and everywhere else was cloudy. So I too a few pics in the back garden.

We went to Eastbourne this month and I was keen to photograph the pier which had recently caught fire, but on the way we saw a surfing dog!
We also stopped off at the Redoubt castle where we caught a glimpse of Jane Austin's ghost.
Then on to the pier.
I'm not sure it was really warm enough to swim so I suspect she may have had a slow day rescuing people.
We stayed with friends - Isabel, David (Grandad), Yasmin and Helen (Mum).

Hastings - what a mess!
Black and white streets - they do look a bit better without the yellow lines.
The East Cliff list.
We went on to Ramsgate and stayed in the Travelodge overlooking the Royal Harbour. Just to the left of the police car is Ship Shape, the cafe where we eat breakfast each day.
Nice reflection in the early morning.
And lights at night

We visited Margate and stopped off at the Turner Gallery

The weather is changing.
The estuary has a lot of wind farms
It was folk week in Broadstairs.
The flat roof building on the right is Bleak House where Dickens used to stay while on holiday in Broadstairs.

We met Tom and Jon on the Leeds Liverpool canal at the top of the flight of locks down to Stanley Dock. We then travelled with them to the Albert Dock and then into Salthouse Dock where they are staying for 10 days.
The waterways guys were fantastic.
...and into the Albert Dock
If like John you found that tricky to follow, there's a very clear 'Skipper's Guide' at http://canalrivertrust.org.uk/canals-and-rivers/liverpool-canal-link.
