Canterbury – a mini break – Part 1

Our second mini break this year was a little trip to Canterbury over the recent bank holiday weekend.  We rented a cottage in the city, within walking distance to the high street and sights, but more importantly, one that was calm, cosy, comfortable – the perfect home away from home.

The following were the highlights of our trip.

Sandwich.

We stumbled upon the No Name Shop – a lovely french bistro upstairs and a well stocked deli downstairs.  No photos of the food.  We had our hands full with the little one!

We fancied having a sandwich here, but it was far too busy.

We caught the tail end of the Saturday market in the square.

There’s always time for some horse-ing around!  Hubby and I got our wires crossed with packing and the bear ended up wearing double denim for the day..

Coastal drive

I can never tire of seeing these beach huts.

Pebbly beaches – no sandcastles to be built this time around.

Wind turbines galore.

Hubby took a photo of this bird.

The sea air did us all good, especially moi who had been battling a chest infection.
