Reasons for trip

Even these elders enjoyed the exhibition at the newly-opened Turner Contemporary in Margate. Nothing in the World but Youth stirred us to think about some of our own experiences of youth, and how we might have expressed them.

Turner's early paintings as a child and teenager were among the most famous being exhibited. His painting: Crossing the Brook reminded us that there are numerous rivers to cross through life. But even those crossings can be fun!

Rodin's Kiss drew a slightly embarrassed smile as we recalled our own relationship that spans nearly half the last century, and much of the time period covered by the exhibition.
