As is often the case I start my ride today not really knowing where I’m going to ride to/
I head out on the A262 to Tunbridge Wells and continue on this road all the way to Tenterden.
I stop on the way to take a photo of the penny farthing at Sissinghurst. This was originally erected for the Tour de France which travelled through the village on 8th July 2007.
Just before Tenterden I turn right onto the Appledore Road ( an old favourite).
After Appledore I follow the road left which winds its way to Brenzett, where I stop to take the photo below.
A little bit of research when I get home on the sign , and I find out that Brenzett, has a small Aeornautical museum, which I may try and find next time I’m down this way at the weekend . It was also the site of a RAF Advanced Landing Ground (ALG) airfield during the Second world War ,at one time operating North American Mustangs IIIs.
a fast blast along the straight A259, before turning right past Lydd airpost, through Lydd itself, coming out on to the joyful Jury’s Gap- a whole series of nice fast curves, and at this time of year no tourist traffic to get in the way. ;o)
I decide to stop an take a walk on the beach at Camber. The tide is high, so no sand today just pebbles.
Here’s me, Helmet Hair with a touch of Seaside Wind!
A short stroll to beachocomb but not much to see, only some seaweed …
and a cute smiley stone
Off again, through Rye, then along the A259 to Hastings, where I stop off to buy some cockles and anchovies for tea tonight.
Then onwards to Sovereign Harbour for a cup of tea and a natter at my friends’ Jo and Simons flat.
The weather report for today had been showers but I have been really lucky until five minutes from home when it does start to rain.
My route for the day.
Home! and I’m ready to enjoy my cockles with a glass of bubbles!
