An unusual day at the cricket for me today. Stayed overnight in Canterbury taking advantage of the low Sunday rates, but it was pretty obvious from first thing. there was not much chance of play today. So making use of my bus pass took a trip to Folkestone, going up Old Dover Road behind an optimistic the Somerset team bus, past the St. Lawrence ground, then on through the countryside passing through Elham, birthplace of Les Ames, into Folkestone via the Cheriton Road ground (have seen a few Folkestone v Dartford football matches there at the adjacent ground). Enjoyed a bit of time on the Leas, the sun came out & tea was taken early in the Leas Pavilion café. Then returned by bus to Canterbury, including a stop right opposite the gate to Selsted cricket ground. Having kept up to date with the state of 'non play' via my mobile headed straight to Canterbury East & my train home. Not a bad day of 'cricket' despite not seeing a ball bowled.
