During our summer visit to the UK we drove to the east coast, staying in the delightful seaside town of Deal and visiting the impressive fortress at Dover castle.
A photographic tour.
The Kings Head in Deal is decorated, as so many pubs are, with over-flowing baskets of flowers.
The Pier at Deal was closed while we were visiting. Chatting to locals we discovered that it is favorite breakfast place with Deal’s fishermen.
The Roman Lighthouse at Dover Castle, dating back to the first century AD. Originally, it was twice as tall as it is now, but the fact that it is still standing at all is astounding.
Craig checking out the access to WW II tunnels at Dover Castle.
Lisa on the throne at Dover Castle. The castle is particularly well-preserved with rooms furnished as they were during Tudor times.
Cave at St. Margaret’s at Cliffe.
St. Margaret’s at Cliffe sea front. In the background is a house where Ian Fleming stayed while writing some of the James Bond novels. Lisa is enjoying the view!
St. Margaret’s at Cliffe is a delightful village around the corner from the port of Dover. The ferry in the background is headed for France, probably to Calais.
