As I mentioned, we are currently on holiday. We cancelled our trip abroad because of the state of Sidney’s health and have been travelling around Kent on the 3-day Kent Rover railway ticket.
Yesterday (Monday) we went to see Sidney and found him very poorly. “I feel very unwell,” was his only comment on the subject. We chatted with him briefly and he bravely responded to what we talked about but it was obviously a strain so we left him to rest. We will go and see him again later in the week.
Kent has some lovely places to visit. Rochester and the Isle of Sheppey are favourites of mine, though to see the remoter parts of Sheppey you really need a car.
Travelling down each day, surfing the rails and coming home again at night is tiring but it is fun. Mostly is goes according to plan but enough goes wrong to make it interesting!
Here are a few photos snapped en route.
Just in case you are wondering, the mooted courier run on Monday did not materialize. We are not too unhappy about this as we have been doing plenty of travelling off our own bat!
