A fairly extreme zoom shot, taken from the shore near the Hotel Continental.

Whitstable is Greta's home port, and she has for a good many years been sponsored by Shepherd Neame, the Faversham brewers. It seems that the sponsorship is now made in the name of Faversham Steam Brewery (Shep's micro-brewery, you might say) and their 'Whitstable Bay' beers.

At the time I took the photo a spell of sunny weather was giving way to much gloomier conditions, which brought a terrific downpour - with hail and thunder - an hour or so later.
