Back on the bus we headed to Canterbury. At Canterbury we had the traditional lunch of "Fish-n-Chips" at Panteli's with apple pie and cream for dessert--YUMMY! Waistline is shot!
Having finished lunch we proceeded to Canterbury Cathedral. Much of the glass from the Cathedral is 12th and 13th century. Currently, much of the building is undergoing restoration of the exterior. Canterbury is known for being the place where Thomas Becket was murdered in 1170-much history here...
We made a quick round of Canterbury and then boarded our bus to Dover.
Dover was simply a quick stop at the beach area for photo ops and fun. The white cliffs of Dover are basically chalk. Once the Dover area was not separated from France by the water now know as the English Channel. The weather was quite nice, but we could not see France....sigh.....
