 A busker in Canterbury with home made guitar.  Reminds me a bit of Seasick Steve and his home made guitars.

Denuded trees in Canterbury looking spooky and a bit evil, a bit like the Ent in Lord of the Rings.

I have been net free most of the day just reading or relaxing.I also did some clothes washing this morning and then listened to the radio. I also caught up with some of my TV series,and in particular The Flash and Supergirl

I am looking forward to Thursday for the monthly lunch club meet upin Brighton.

I must also thank the anonymous person who paid my LJ account for a year.

Meanwhile,some pics from Friday.

The morning was spent listening to the radio and reading - waiting for the free lunch midday.

I also had some money unexpectedly come in from one of my research companies.This bode well for the day ahead.

Lunch was either macaroni cheese or pasta with meatballs.I had a bit of both and it was followed by a very tasty apple crumble and custard.

Then in the afternoon i took a train over to Rochester to do a charity shop visit. O purchased a winter pullover and a book.

I then popped into 'Spoons for a few beers and tried three other beers from their current festival.

Woodfords Norfolk Bowman (5.0 % ABV)
Adnams Sloe Porter (5.0 % ABV)
Trunan's Sampson Strong (5.8 % ABV)

They are also doing these Halloween based cocktails - if you are into that sort of thing - i am not.

I also took some more pics around the town.

The museum was not open but there was a very interesting installation in the art gallery, called Occupation - works by Steve Mace. Link here -


The Eagle Inn have great live jazz on Sundays ,so i might just visit that establishment one weekend.

The final pic was taken on the train leaving Rochester heading Chatham way.

An enjoyable day indeed.

This is the ale i had.

Evening dusk towards Golden Hope Sittingbourne.

Lunch was at the excellent Bella Italia in Brighton. We had the Roma style pizza. Very filling indeed.

Journey down to Brighton was slow going with the rain thia morning but the weather had cleared abd became sunny whilst we were at the restaurant.  Bro gab me some more books to read, another Sony mp3 player and a new camera which i need to read the very thick manual before i get use to it, 

Journey back home was easier and Phil an i arrived in the Bourne just after six pm.

After my visit ti do the lunch i ended up in Faversham Not realising that it was the Hop Festival. The town was busy,there was live bands and musicians in the streets and lots of stalls, including one where you could sample many Kent brewed ciders. I think it was the cider that got me almost kegless.

That stall had some really great tasting ciders.

There was morris dancers and food stalls.
The weather that started sunny had gob=ne overcast when i arrived in the town but luckily it did not rain too much - just minor spits occasionally.

I also had a couple of cheap ales,Rockin' Robin and Hopdaemon.

So here are the rest of the pics under the cut.

More photos here )

It was a fun day all round.

If there is one maxim about interviewing in a busy public space it is that it is will be a bit of a slog, and so it was, although achieving 12 interviews over the six hour shift was quite good. It was all about the retail establishments at the station. At least the app for it was working fine on my smartphone.

So here are some pics -

Walking down Victoria Street this morning.

The location where i was.

I am now full, as i just done a Spoons visit in Maidstone as part of my mystery shopping trips today.The other was a mobile phone shop visit in Ashford.

In the pub i had their buttermilk coated chicken burger, a beer and a cappuccino. Basic but tasty.

I also took a few snaps as it was another fine warm sunny day.

The truncheon girls were fun to watch!
jazzy_dave: (Real Ale fiend)
Well in the end i did not go to Rainham but Faversham - this was around three in the afternoon after i had a cheeky pint at Spoons. I sold a few paperbacks , bought some pipe tobacco and took some snaps.

Faversham West Street around six in the afternoon.
