WATERY WEDNESDAY- TRAVELS WITH MY NIECE: DESTINATION - MARGATE IN THANET, KENT...

Looking across from here, the jetty, towards the promanade, and famous Dreamland (now to be made into a theme park), the tide is on its way out - it goes way out - leaving pools for paddling, sea weed, and gulls...  It is Sunday and the jetty is open to small, garage-like eatery stores, and an art auction...






This is the new Turner Contemporary Center - closed at moment to install Turner paintings and Rodin's 'The Kiss' by the Tate in London.  (JMW Turner 1775-1851 lived and painted in his small house here).



  Located at the foot of the jetty, overlooking the ocean where the pier used to be.


FOR MORE WATERY WEDNESDAY PLEASE VISIT HERE!

I fly home to US on Wednesday - until, then, friends!

  1. It all looks very familiar, except the art gallery which I don't think suits its surrounds. The building I remember most is the clock-tower, which appears to be completely unchanged.

  2. It looks as though the weather was kind when you took these photos. I'd forgotten how far the sea went out.
    Safe flight home:-)

  5. The tide goes 'way out, too, at my hometown, White Rock, British Columbia. I remember paddling in the sun-warmed tide pools when I was a child.
    I think I would like Margate but the Turner gallery does look out of place. I'd rather have a pier.
