2014 March Margate Beach Cross Review.
Margate hosted what can only be described as one of the best beach cross events yet, the sun was shining all day and the heat was on and im not talking about the race. It was a scorching 20c in Margate which made Margate in Thanet England hotter than the popular tourest spot Malaga in Spain!
With hot weather on Margates side and renewed interest in the town from the new TV show Edge of Heaven thousands of people flocked to the seaside, many were dressed in bikinis in March which is crazy - strangly enoough a few people got quite burnt, not expecting the sun to have so much power!
Anyhow at explore thanet we thought we should share with you a few pictures of our day out at the Margate Beach Cross - it was a great success all round well done everyone involved.

Botany Bay in February
With the Sun out in full force we thought we should head out and share some of the sunny February in Thanet with you. So we popped over to Botany Bay and took a couple of snaps for you to see
While we were out people started cycling and walking past until it really felt like we had move in to the future, it felt like late spring joggers in Tshirts and shorts - water bottles in hand strided past, I almost fancied an ice cream.
