As I prepare this blog I am reminded that it is exactly seven months today since we travelled to Dover. I almost have to pinch myself to check that it is real and that I am not imagining an all expenses paid holiday in London. It sounds like the stuff of fantasy, but no, it is true.On Sunday morning Shane, Yvette, Doug and I got up and after a light breakfast popped across the road for the 8 am Communion service at St Margaret’s. We had a lovely time with the friendly congregation after the service and then returned as the others were having breakfast so we sat down to a cooked English breakfast.
We got some shots at the white cliffs but I think you have to be out at sea to get the best pictures. We were surprised to find that the size of the Port of Dover is phenomenal with millions passing through each year. Once again we found this Castle, one of the biggest in England covers many Acres. In fact they provided a road train to get around. Being only 21 miles from France you can actually see Calais from the top of the great Tower. I think I will let the pictures do the Talking.
