A Whitstable Whale....

Yes there really is a whale in Whitstable, but more of that in a minute.....

The gorgeous weather on Saturday made us decide to go out for a nice walk/bike ride. Little F learnt to ride his without his stabilisers a couple of summers ago when he was only about 4, but he could never start off on his own, he just managed to balance!
He hasn't been bothered by his bike since then but really wanted to on Saturday so after a quick ride around the green near our house, he has obviously grown a bit as that was it, he was off! He was riding along with his Dad and D took her scooter, which of course I ended up carrying most of the way!
I remember reading at Attic 24 a week or so ago about a lovely sunday walk she had taken with her son and a beautiful blossom covered path! I forgot until Saturday that we have our own lovely little paths in Whitstable - some little secret parts of Whitstable that most people probably don't see. There is a lovely little path through the golf course.
Go along a bit further and come out at West Cliff and you will discover.............

Whitstable's very own Whale! This was in our local paper and I think it was even in The Daily Mail, but I never knew exactly where it was until Saturday!
Me and D couldn't resist posing with Wally the Whale (as we named him, not sure of his real name) - I think he might have eaten D's arm!!!!

We too hung out in Whitstable on Saturday, though in a much more touristy way. I love that whale. Sandwich is meant to be doing 'in bloom' but I'd rather do a huge whale!

The Whale looks great! I wonder how often it needs trimming!
