Where did you go on holiday, oooh is that the Flat Iron Building, did you go to New York?
Well no actually, I went to
Margate on a day trip to visit the Turner Contemporary Gallery.
It’s an impressive space, huge picture window views out to sea. The exhibition reacquainted me with the Rodin drawings I first saw as a teenager in Paris.
The town has Georgian terraces scattered with gingerbread houses.
Ancient half timbered houses juxtaposed with comtemporaray.
A town of faded glory which has not been sanitised to the core by the developers.
There’s still space for the creatives, unique and eccentric.
Certainly unscrubbed enough to have a Primark on the sea front.
I could tell you about the grotto alluded to on this street sign by a crocheted wall, but that can wait for another day.
