My final day in Kent today, so Julian and I headed to Folkestone for a wander around. I wanted to visit a Photographic shop in the Old High Street, then we went for a blustery walk along the cliffs and prom.

This was the view from the top, looking down the funicular railway (sadly shut during the off-season). Our first find was down there in the car park.

Further along Marine Parade, the rather cold-looking palm trees held another little hide. The view from GZ shows the rather impressive Georgian crescent, still looking resplendent in the rather grey weather.

Our final find was Harbour View, with a grand view at that! An easy find – we were quite grateful as it was very windy by then! Next off to ‘Spoons for a rather welcome lunch.

Once I was home in the evening, I headed out once more for the Essex Meet #36 in Chignall. A little series of seven drive-bys have been put out around the pub, but I’m saving them for daily finds – that’s another week’s worth to keep the streak going!
