A day out at Dover castle....

On Saturday we took a drive down to Dover to visit Dover castle and the secret wartime tunnels. it was a really good day out and was really interesting. The views were also fantastic across the English Channel.

here is a view of part of the castle.....

....'Why are you taking a photo of me Mummy?'....
..another part of the castle.....


.....and another one!
The wartime tunnels were really interesting, especially the underground hospital. It was quite amaziing the think they organised the evacuation of Dunkirk there in 1940 and it was such an important part in the organisation of the D-day landings. A very educational trip was had by all! Unfortuantely you weren't allowed to take any photos in there for security reasons...
