The South Coast and a Lovely Man

Sunday, 9th March was the most glorious, early Spring day and my friend Ruth (@CHistorians) and I decided to make the most of it and walk along the South coast from Deal to Dover. Ruth organised everything and we got an early morning train from Kings Cross via Ashford on the new high speed line.

Now, as you all know, train guards checking tickets aren't renowned for their smiles or humour but James here, put paid to that myth. He was so helpful and smiley to everyone so, James, thank you and a thumbs up
thumbs up

I'm mentioning Ruth lots in the hope that it will prick her conscience as she has promised me a guest post about Marie Curie Cancer Care.


Walking along the front between Deal and Dover, somewhere near Walmer, I stumbled across this bench dedicated to the lovely and sadly missed Nick Webb. jimwilliamsbooks.com/nick-webb-1949-2012/   


Now Nick is no longer with us but I would like to give him a posthumous thumbs up and thanks for making all our lives richer. thumbs up Thanks, Nick. (And a thumbs up to Jim Williams for the beautiful obituary which so well captured the man, thanks thumbs up)
