My new bolthole is Folkestone in Kent. Only 55 minutes from St Pancras on the fast train and you're there by the sea. There are lovely walks along the white cliff tops where on October 11th we picked wild apples, saw butterflies coupling and wild violets in flower; plus a really strange-looking long beetle that crossed our path. It was a warm and sunny day so I guess the wildlife was enjoying it as much as we were. We came across a Battle of Britain memorial site and nosed around in there taking fotos of the replica planes, which were impressive even though they were copies. This foto is the result of getting in close and personal to the aeroplanes.
