Day 85 Bexley to Sandwich

Beach & Cliffs at Kingsgate Bay

Beach & Cliffs at Kingsgate Bay

Thursday 16th of September, 82 miles, 6 hours 9 minutes

Weather: Dry, Warm and Sunny

Accommodation: The Kings Arms Hotel

The wind that had plagued me yesterday fortunately worked to my advantage today, with the terrain being fairly favourable. I had expected to be quicker but I wasn't feeling 100%.

Once clear of London and the Thames estuary, I was able to enjoy the scenery a bit more as I returned to the coast, firstly at Whitstable and Herne Bay then later in the Thanet area at Margate and Broadstairs.

The section of coastline between Margate and Broadstairs was the highlight, particularly at Kingsgate Bay. Given the time I would have liked to have had a proper look around Broadstairs and Sandwich (my over-night stop), but they will have to join my list of places to revisit at some future date.
