Well, how did that happen?  It is nearly October!  The official summer months have flown by with many return guests and plenty of new ones too who have discovered the delights that Ramsgate and the Isle of Thanet have to offer.  We really haven't stopped but it's been great fun!  OK, that's my feeble excuses for not writing a blog for a while out of the way so let's get down to what's happening here in sunny Ramsgate!  To start with, it really is sunny and the photo of the beach was taken this week with people swimming in the sea on another balmy evening here in Cos

Well Easter is just a week away and the sun is shining on Righteous Ramsgate!  We have been blessed with gorgeous summer weather that I hope is here to stay!  The beach was really busy today and as you can see from the photo, Rosie Dog is loving it!

How did that happen??  We have been so busy throughout the Christmas and New year, I almost lost track of time! Happy New Year (belated but just in the boundaries of etiquette!) to all our customers!  

The first obstacle of the year for us was having our annual inspection which was carried out in the first week of January and am pleased to say we, once again received 100% for cleanliness and a 5 star rating for Charlie's lovely brekkie! 

December is just around the corner!

How did that happen?? This year is flying by at a rate of knots and thankfully, the B&B is still busy with lots of people enjoying an 'out of season' visit to Ramsgate.  We have been so lucky with the weather this year with the cold nights only just starting in the past few weeks making for crisp walks along the beach.

The festival season is upon us!

August is upon us and the sun is shining!  As always on the Isle of Thanet, there are loads of events to enjoy.  This week there is Braodstairs' famous Folk Week which goes on until Friday 12th August.  Closer by in Ramsgate, we have Lark in The Park starting on 11th and running for 10 days up at Government Acre.

Ramsgate is looking marvellous at the moment with lots of activities, events and new businesses in the pipeline.  One of my favourite new places to go is Archive Homestore which is a fantastic and creative use of our stunning 1820s arches at the Royal Harbour.  It really is a must visit when you come to Ramsgate.

We are all getting very excited this week here in Ramsgate as The Defence of the Nation Museum are putting on a Spitfire Day to commemorate the first flight of the Spitfire 80 years ago on 5th March 1936.  The celebrations will start from 11am down by Ramsgate Tunnels and include live entertainment from Naomi Hart and her Hotsy Totsy Quintet (who are staying at the B&B!) and Swing Noir, a popular local duo.  There will also be local business stalls and a children’s marquee with Joey the balloon modelling clown

Ramsgate is looking more stunning than ever at the moment with a fantastic response from our local boat owners to decorate their boats to creat a dazzling display at our harbour. Even the arches have got in on the act this year to create an even more Christmassy feel to our town.  This Wednesday, with the help of the public, I am helping out with the judging which is going to be even more difficult than last year.

November! How did that happen?

I can't believe how quickly the year has gone (I know, sign of getting old!) and November is already here.  I'm a bit weird in that I quite like the winter, the late sunrises and early sunsets with the low light means lots of great opportunities to photograph Ramsgate and the surrounding areas in all it's glory.  The best bit is that it improves as the winter deepens with spectacular sunsets over our Royal Harbour especially in January.  If you come for a walking holiday, don't forget your good camera!
