25.7.07: Ramsgate harbour

10.00 am:
After I leave Karen's I return to the harbour, wait while John the security man lowers the drawbridge, then cross and meet Alice, a law student working over the summer for Thanet District Council as a fuel barge operative. She refuels pleasure craft in the marina and lets me go on board her floating fuel station.

At a kiosk at East Cliff, Gerry of Ramsgate First, who does regular breathing therapy to cope with after-effects of an accident, tells me the way to artist Ruth Cutler's sea garden, which is being constructed at Eastern Undercliff out of sea and beach materials and is designed to be viewed from the cliff top above. Go see!
