What if Star Wars was a 1980's Anime?
The Star Wars character C3PO was photographed rod in hand by Bo and Maggie Beolens while the couple were on a bird-watching trip at Reculver near Herne Bay.
Mr Beolens, 64, from Margate, said: 'I’m a keen bird watcher and I had driven to Reculver to have a look for wildlife nesting among the Roman ruins there.'I pulled up into the car park and was just sat in my car when I saw a glimmer of gold along the seafront.'I am a fan of Star Wars so I instantly recognised it to be C3PO stood there with a fishing rod in one hand.'My wife Maggie and I were just sat there with our mouths open - it was such a strange sight.'Luckily I had a camera with me so I took a few photos.'I have no explanation as to what he was doing there - maybe he was fishing for oil cans?'It was really misty and so we didn’t see many birds but seeing C3PO fishing instead made our morning.'WTF? :)
