All the pretty horses

Hot on the heels of the Oyster Festival is the Whitstable Regatta. The Regatta mainly involves a funfair on the green slopes behind the promenade in Tankerton.

That's right, the event is called after Whitstable but takes place in Tankerton. I don't get it either.

However - the funfair does include a fabulous carousel. Peaches and I had a go. You can just about see us riding a chicken at the back of this photo. For some reason, even though we went round and round and round and round, Recaro did NOT manage to take a photo with us in the middle of the shot.
That didn't spoil my fun though. I loved it. And Peaches insisted I hold her tight. That was kind of cool, too.

I'm Anne Stephanie Cruz, one of your blog followers. I work for, it's a site dedicated to giving useful information and advice to people who are passionate about having their own daycare business - but don't know where or how to start.

Anyhow, I sent you this email to ask if you would consider having me write a guest post on your blog. It can just be a short article about child care, parenting and daycare, setting up a daycare center - or really anything that you might find interesting.

Please let me know what you think. Thanks in advance!

Sincerely Yours,

Anne Stephanie Cruz

I would always opt for a chicken on a carousel, horses are so last year lol. Glad you guys enjoyed yourselves. Have a word with Ricardo though, he needs to keep his finger on the button to capture the best shots.

Timing is everything! Love those old carousels; we have one at Tatton Park that Izzy loves to go on.
