Dover

We stayed at the BEST western MARINA Hotel Dover Marina Hotel & Spa for 2 nights. It is a great old hotel and has a commanding view of the harbor. When the Constellation came in we could see her from our room. We went to the Dover Castle and took the Secret Wartim Tunnels tour. This is where the command center for the evacuation of Dunkirk was located. Very appropriate since the next day was the 60th anniversary of VE Day, something still fresh in the minds of the people there. After that we took a walk above the White Cliffs of Dover. The next day we rented a car and went for a drive around Kent county. It's always a challenge driving on the other side of the roads over there.
