Canterbury and Dover

This is where we are at the moment as we catch up on the emails and the blogging. We have had a couple of lovely days.
On Wednesday we headed back into Canterbury and went on a human powered river tour. It was very scenic and we learnt lots of history again. Here we are coming through one of the low bridges.
We then headed to Dover and visited Dover castle. It was fascinating. Here is one of the war rooms in the secret war tunnels used in WW II.
We did heaps of walking.


Some of the rooms in the castle had been decorated as they would have been in Henry II's time. I didn't realise how colourful it would have been.
The Royal School of Needlework stitched all the embroidered cushions.
