the Dartmouth Tunnel. Saturday Brian & Marie had a very hectic day. First Marie had to be in early for her hospital operation, then Brian was to drive

Tuesday went to Dover, stopping of at the
SKCC where Paulene had a guided tour all around even the boiler room,
Reuben went as well as he was his Dad's assistant that day, but I was exspecting a dirty faced pair back but they were clean?
Paulene wanted some M&S underware so was going with her sister to Dover to shop. Had lunch first on the beach but the shopping
center Tescos was only a food hall! Then we went to the White cliffs, Brian gave us the option of 4 mile walk or a 1 mile walk to South foreland
I was happy we went for the walk down the foot path not all the way along the cliffs. You can see
above our foot path where Brian dropped us off to walk to the Light House after a very enjoyable tour round the light,
We went down to St. Margarets Bay looking forward to food! The Steak Night but it was reservations only,
so we went to Dover for a Carvery at the Rock Rose where it went down well with a nice Australian Red !
