I happily walked along toward Herne Bay. I wasn't sure how long it would take but I left at 11am and forgot to look when I arrived. Ha ha. Oh well. My guess is a bit over an hour. These guys passed me a few times on their unicycles. They were each like on mountain bike wheel. I haven't seen big ones like this before. On the bumpy ground bit before getting to the path they'd ride and fall off or stop to let another catch up. Hence the passing each other a few times.
I made it to Herne Bay. This is looking back to my town that's hiding in the haze. There were lots of people out today soaking in the sun.

The shopping hub is right at the main bus station in Canterbury which was very convenient for me. I was soon off the bus and into the stores. It's a bit unusual shopping in pounds. Everything seems cheap but I don't think it actually is. I did manage to buy just about everything off the sale racks though. Great sales too. A lot was 50-70% off. I also saw this fascinating fun activity taking place. I've never seen this before. I think it would be more fun to be in one of those balls that actually moves along the ground though. These guys were basically spinning in the water.
Shopping was quite successful and I got into the groove of exploring and searching for what I wanted. I wasn't sure what type of stores were around or where to go for things so I just roamed. After starting at about 11am, by 4:30pm I finally decided on an upstairs cafe that turned out to be a cute little spot. I got a window box seat overlooking one of the shopping streets and ate a yummy piece of treacle tart and drank a delicious hot chocolate with hazelnut syrup in it. Mmm.
