“ Kent, England. „
Living on an island is not as difficult as it sounds, it's fun, if you know where to look! I live on the Isle Of Sheppy. The name means Isle of Sheep. It is on the North Kent coast about an hours drive from Margate. There is plenty to do here, winter and summer alike. We have a fancy dress parade during the summer that the whole town joins in. The Rock'n'Roll Loony Party have a base here, which makes the whole thing go with a bang. We have a good variety of shops for the tourists, plenty of cafes and resturants and some good pubs. There is a bird sanctury just as you come on the island too for the twitchers among you. Our beaches have won awards for cleanness and the piece de resistance, we have our very own nudist beach tucked away in the dunes at the end of the island. We also have a thriving port industry importing and exporting cars, fruit and forest products, if you live in Kent, the paper you read daily may well have been imported through Sheerness Docks. I enjoy my life on Sheppy and if you have not visited us yet, i can tell you, once bitten forever smitten.
No-one has written about my area! What a surprize! With all the holiday makers we get here, I would have thought someone would have written before me! Situated on the north east coast of Kent, Sheppey is a lovely place to stay on holiday, or live! I've been here for nearly 6 years now, and I don't regret my move at all! We have everything a holiday maker could wish for, good pubs, good food and nice people. The beaches are kept nice and clean, we've even won awards! There's also the quiet, un-touched beaches, where, if you're lucky, you can find fossils! And then there's also Elmley bird sanctuary, if you're a keen, or casual, bird watcher! You'll see our Marsh Harriers if you're lucky! The main industry is Sheerness Docks. We import cars, fruit and timber products, amongst other things, and our small lifeboat station is situated there too. There's a lot of history connected to Sheppey too.....including Lord Nelson! Take the time to have a look at our island, you might like it too!
