a good day out
A day out in Dungeness
There is so much to see!
I went specifically to see Derek Jarmen's garden and it lived up to my expectations, in its strange and startling beauty.
The whole 'ness environment is so stunning, the sea, the shingle wasteland, the corroding fisherman's junk, the huge skies and long views.
With it's assortment of strange cabins, it is slightly wilderness like, slightly shanty town like.
It has so many great attractions, from the old lighthouse with it's amazing lenses to a modern black rubber clad cabin to the minature train line and let's not forget the looming power station at the end of the track.
I imagined living there in a small cabin with big views and it was a happy imagined life.
