What They Did On Their Holidays (No. 1)

Yes, it's been very quiet at Grillust Towers over the last couple of months and for that we apologise.

In our defense, we must state that we've been catching up on some much needed R 'n' R (Rock and Roll) and also sallying forth across the kingdom/world to see what's out there. All the while, lovingly documenting our findings for your visual delectation.

The first Grillust™operative to return to base with a clutch of holiday snaps is none other than moon-faced beardy bloke, Tony Peart (33).

Tony has spent the last few summers in a tent, visiting places in the United Kingdom that in his words; "no one goes on holiday to". Some may find this odd, but it seems to keep him happy so who are we to argue.

Stand-out destinations of recent years have included: Birmingham; Coalville in Leicestershire and High Wycombe?..

This year he based himself in Ashford (Kent) and later in the summer, for a change of scenery, travelled all the way to the much more exotic location of Boston.
The Boston post will have to wait for another time, what follows here are the highlights of ten days exploring 'The Garden of England' – Kent.
