Oh! I do like to be beside the seaside ...

After posting all out Christmas cards, my wife and I decided to go out for a fish and chip lunch ... and as the best fish and chips is always served at the seaside, this meant a trip to Herne Bay!

(To be truthful my wife's car also needed petrol and a longish run to make sure that the battery was fully charged before the onset of winter ... and a trip to Herne Bay enabled us to kill two birds with one stone. In addition we both love watching the sea – even during wintertime – and are always looking for an excuse to go to the seaside to indulge this minor vice.)

We arrived at Herne Bay at about 1.30pm ... just as it began to rain rather heavily. We were able to park the car quite close to Mackaris Coffee Lounge & Ice Cream Parlour (which is situated on the seafront at 54, Central Parade, Herne Bay, Kent, CT6 5JG) and we both had an excellent lunch.

The rain had not stopped by the time we had finished lunch and so we had to forgo the pleasure of taking a walk around the shops in Herne Bay and just drove home ... but it does give us an excuse to go back again when the weather is better.


  1. I always remember their cafe in Canterbury when I was at Uni.. lovely hot chocolate!

  2. Steve-the-Wargamer,

    I did not know that they had a cafe in Canterbury ... although it does not surprise me.

    They do make some excellent ice creams as well as fish and chips ... but it was a bit too cold yesterday to have one.

    All the best,
