So far I have been focusing on where we are about to go, but it occured to me yesterday that it would be a nice idea to have a post about where we come from and the surrounding areas. What better way to do it than in a picture post (plus the fact I wanted an excuse to test my new travel camera).
Disclaimer: I don’t proclaim to be a great photographer, and this was the first time I had used the camera so be kind to me. That said I am really keen to imrpove my photography skills so if anyone has any tips they would be greatley appreciated!
Myself, Arthur and Ben all live in the South East of England. As you will see in the photos, it is an interesting actually a fairly nice place to live, with some nice scenery and a historical background.
My home village, Camber Sands in my opinion is the best beach in the UK. In the summer thousands upon thousands of people visit from all over the country to sunbathe on its golden sand, and play in the giant sand dunes.
The closest town to my house. This ancient town used to be an island surrounded by the sea. I won’t go into the history of the place as we would be here for ever, but the town used to be a smuggling hot spot and has many great stories to tell.
Technically speaking, the photos below are not really from Appledore, but it is the closest point on a map to them. Near Arthur’s house there is a small Church that seems to be ploncked in the middle of no where! The land it sits on used to be under the sea.
Any way that will do for the time being, if you want to see more of the photos I took on these day check out my Flickr. We will be posting the photos of our trip their as well!
