Sand's Pictures

The Meerkat
The Meerkat (Nikon D5000)

I am sure if it weren't for Aleksandr and his cheap car insurance then the title of this would sound mysterious, could be a name for a novel, perhaps involving spies or even a nick name of a sportsman, but Aleksandr does exist so now all you can think of is car insurance. But no I hear you cry, Zamyatin haven't you been concentrating, Aleksandr is just an innocent by-stander in a mix-up between compare the market and compare the meerkat, did you not take note of his cautionary tale. Ah I say, yes I did take note of this, but I reply, if this is the case, why is he so eager to be co-opted into supplying meerkat soft toys for them all of a sudden then? The reason? He's been paid off, that's why.

Anyway this cheating sand monkey is just sitting there posing for his photo before packing a few soft toys off in the post secure in the knowledge that his millions are intact before he rests his weary meerkat head on a pillow filled with golden goose feathers, don't say it isn't happening, because it is.

Herne Bay
Herne Bay (TYTN II)

With the sun out again it was time to head out to the beach because it appears that I was in possetion of far too much white skin apparently red or brown is preferable. So as the title suggested we popped down to Herne Bay which is just down from Reculver, a place we visited on Sunday. It's a smallish seaside town filled with people who sound like Ray Winston (when he's playing the part of Londoner which is all the time). Nothing much to report other than it was one of the places (the only place if the blurb is to be belived) that the bouncing bomb was tested and a place with not just one pier but two.

In this picture you can see both... Honest. The new one is obvious and not have friends trying to save it. We didn't look round it but it doesn't look like mutch. The old one is the small dark thing on the horizon and the only part left of it which is the pier head and apparently used to ttake passengers to France by boat of course but by the looks of it by the time they got there they would have travelled most of the 20 odd miles. Abandon in th early 1800's because of lack of interest and a deterioration of the structure this is all that remains.
