Easter Sunday at the white cliffs of Dover

Easter Sunday we drove to the white cliffs of Dover at the English Channel. We walked along the entire length of the cliffs which is a 2 mile walk one way. The white cliffs are facing France which was visible. A really nice walk, also as we had beautiful weather! Along the way there were warning signs as below. But luckily we didn't fall :-)
John brushed up his driving skills for driving on the "wrong" side. He is doing a great job!

Stonehenge ... one wonder of the world!

Yesterday we drove to Stonehenge, the great and ancient stone circle which is one of the wonders of the world. Stonehenge is about one hour away from London.
What visitors see today are the substantial remnants of the last in a sequence of such monuments erected between c. 3000 BC and 1600 BC. Each monument was a circular structure, aligned with the rising of the sun at the solstice.
Just imagine building something like that with only very basic tools from about 5000 years ago. Amazing!!!!
