the big deal about Deal...

Yes, I know I owe you a post about that veg box (which was fab by the way - thank you Abel & Cole peeps), and about a hundred and one other things. I'm getting there.

In the meantime, I thought I'd let you into a secret.

The quaint little town of Deal, on the east coast of Kent (near Dover), is a very special place, even in the bitter depths of winter. Great place for a weekend away. It's quite a place for foodies, too (add that to the list of posts I owe you), but more on that later. For now, here are some pics for you to be going on with... And yes, throughout the weekend, the light and the sky and the sea seemed to change with every moment... Nature at its best.

Hi, I live in Deal, and it's very odd to see it in print? Were you just visiting?
And I'm intrigued about the 'good places to eat' I only know of a couple (other than my house! LOL) So I'd be really interested to hear your thoughts. Nice to see the great photo's.

These are all lovely, though I'm smitten with the pic of the boat. Just beautiful.
