Tea in Tankerton

We arrived in Whitstable in time for breakfast at the Seaview café on Tankerton Slopes. One of the cafes on my list to try from Egg Bacon Chips and Beans by Russell M. Davies. I had egg, beans and toast, great doorstops of buttery unctious loveliness, with a good mug of tea sat outside with dogs playing, children giggling and old folks, very english seaside. There are wonderful painted beach huts along the front, reputed to be going for around £25,000 a piece, laughable, but not as laughable as the Bournemouth ones which are rumoured to fetch £80,000! Ridiculous since you’re not even allowed to spend the night in them, but oh so desirable, I’d snap one up in a trice if I had the opportunity.
