  1. Monument Murph

    Murphy made the most of the fantastic October weather this week when he enjoyed a three mile or so walk along The Saxon Shore Way at Whitstable and a long stretch of beach and promenade. His route included a couple of miles of dog friendly beach (see our walks and beaches directory with more detail for Whitstable here) as well as a wander around Whitstable’s working harbour. Murphy was admired by many dog loving day trippers and locals. Near the end of our walk we called in at The Monument for lunch. The humans enjoyed Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwiches (one on white, the other on brown) and a couple of drinks. We all sat in the garden lapping up the Sun – Murphy was very interested in the furry beasties in caged runs in the garden – we didn’t sit too close! After lunch we made our way home through the church yard (All Saints with its Norman tower) and across the track bed of the oldest passenger railway in the world (opened in 1830 and now part of the Crab and Winkle cycle path). What a great doggie day out.

    East Kent might make a good destination for a dog friendly holiday with a selection of self catering holiday accommodation to choose between.  If you’d like to stay in Whitstable maybe one of the holiday parks that are happy for you to bring your dog might be worth considering?
