Red Sand Fort: fair weather in October
A view of the towers from the east, with the distant Kent coast to the left.

The photo was taken from the paddle-steamer 'Waverley', on a five-and-a-half hour trip out of Gravesend. The weather was about as good as you could hope for in early October, with a temperature of 16C recorded at Southend in the afternoon. With a brisk north-west breeze blowing across the estuary, it didn't feel quite that warm eight miles off-shore.
