Day 29

Day 29: Saturdays are always so exhausting because everyones just itching to travel. This weekend was no exception as we took a day excursion to Canterbury and Dover.

Canterbury is a medieval town known for its beautiful Cathedral, the home of the arch Bishop of England. The church was absolutely stunning with color stained glass windows dating back to the 12th Century! As you can see, I went a litttttle overboard with my pictures.

Next stop was Dover. We visited the Dover castle which sits upon the city on some very steep white cliffs. The city is located at the southern-most tip of England making it the closest port to France (we could even see it across the way). The cliffs home a system of military tunnels which have been strategic tools for the british in both World Wars. Although all the sites were fascinating, the CRAZY strong winds were the most fun!
