Hooray for Day Trips

Views of Dover Priory from the top of Dover Castle.

Those of us without Monday classes traveled down to southeast England to Dover, to see both the Castle there and the White Cliffs. Both were spectacular and I would have liked to stay longer. We arrived by train which took about and hour and a half and went to the hill that the castle is situated at first. Some of the first activity here was by the Romans who built two lighthouses and a series of underground tunnels. These tunnels were kept up, and during WWII were expanded for use by the British Army serving as a strategic position as they are on the coastline facing the Straight of Dover and France. It's also quite a lovely sight.
