Our National Trust Cards gave us admission and we had a quick look at the Visitor Centre that describes the cliffs. As a white-haired traveller myself I was especially interested to see that it's erosion that allows them to remain white!
We were too late for the final minibus shuttle service of the day that takes visitors along the two-mile trail to South Foreland Lighthouse. My hike-loving husband would have managed the walk, but not me! So we retreated onto a bench overlooking the harbour. We were fascinated to watch the late afternoon ferries come and go. The visibility was good so the French coast was as clear as we could have wished. We ended up day-dreaming where our next holioday might be.
Leaving Dover to cross the channel would be the begnning of another journey. Maybe we'll do that one day.
