Journey to the End of the World

Today marks my last day in Folkestone, but there is still plenty of time to kill before I make my way back home. There is so much to do in this small town, I wish I am staying around for longer!

Lobster & Scallop Sunday brunch by Folkstone Harbour

After checking out the hotel, I visited a seafood bar right in front of the harbour and enjoyed a luxurious brunch (it was a ยฃ20 whole lobster ๐Ÿฆž, which to me was quite a bargain!) Though I needed to keep warring off a seagull who had been eyeing my food from the get go! ๐Ÿ˜  Once I finished and left the table to get some tissue, it wasted no time hopping onto my leftovers and took off with the empty lobster shell! ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜‚ (Sneaky bird!)

Mermaid on Sunny Sands Beach

Todayโ€™s weather was much more pleasant compared to how it was the past days, so I decided to journey along the other side of the coast, heading into the Folkestone Warren area.

By the beach ๐Ÿ–
Wasnโ€™t too cold for a mango ice cream! ๐Ÿจ

The hotel receptionist did warn me it was tough to get to the beach area down Folkestone Warren, and boy, was he right! I somehow picked the more difficult route along the coast too (typical me- as I found out later I would have had a much easier time walking uphill past the golf courses then back down.) The slippery mud along the path ๐Ÿ’ฆ resulted from the rain the previous days certainly didnโ€™t help (and I really should get a different pairs of shoes besides my usual flat trainers… ๐Ÿ˜“) The views were definitely worth the effort though! I would take it as my workout for the day done!

The โ€˜easierโ€™ path uphill which I didnโ€™t take… ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ
So many graffiti around the place!
Journey on! ๐Ÿฅพ
Was so knackered by this point… ๐Ÿ˜‘ (My trainers were covered in mud by then!)
Finally down by the beach! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Getting through that large pile of rocks was also tricky haha!)
Took the chance to rinse off my trainers in the water! ๐Ÿ˜‚
So calming here! ๐Ÿ˜Œ
Had this โ€˜End of the Worldโ€™ ๐ŸŒŽ feeling here ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

โ€˜Exerciseโ€™ done – itโ€™s time to head back to the town centre to get a bubble tea to recharge! (The two ladies in the shop were so nice and funny. Turned out they were both from London too! We had a great chat about Folkestone and why they decided to settle here. Maybe I should do the same? ๐Ÿ˜‚)

Reenergise with bubble tea! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜

I am going to miss little town! What a special place Folkestone is! ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š
