Is it me, or are alleys getting narrower?

Does Nifty's butt look big?



Can you see the name of the cottage behind Mr Nifty?



Yes, this really is the name of the alleyway, in Whitstable on the Kent coast.



This is one of many similar alleyways in Whitstable, left over from the days when smugglers needed to make a quick escape! Whitstable is a very strong contender for where Mr Nifty and I want to live when we grow up.

Great pictures - looks like an interesting place to visit. Can't read the name on the cottage though x

Oh I love Whitstable. I texted Mark as soon as I got there a few weeks ago to ask 'when do we move to Whitstable?' Isn't it beautiful? Have you met the nice craft-shop lady who makes felted bags out of local yarns?

Enjoy! And Squeeze Gut Alley is brilliant!

Felix I restrained myself from entering the craft shop - and we are also determined to move there!

I see Mr. Nifty favors the same type of hats as Mr. By ;)
