The day involved a tea/coffee reception and then a sea trip to see the seals and other wild life of the River Stour. This was then followed by a traditional fish and chip lunch with ice cream and then a visit to the Maritime Museum. The day finished with Ramsgate Historical Costume Walk around Ramsgate Royal Harbour.
The weather was perfect for the sea trip where guests saw about 12 seals and wild birds. The museum visit was very interesting and on route around the Royal Harbour we were greeted by a Ramsgate Volunteer Victorian Soldier, Elizabeth Fry who provided comfort to woman slaves when the slave ship docked in Ramsgate for supplies and two Victorian Sea Bathing Dippers.
