Dover Castle Adventure
Today as usual we went on our morning swim. It was really choppy. So I am glad that we didn't end up going out. We did a lot more of body surfing than actual swimming. Afer lunch it started to rain as predicted by the very reliable weather people. Leore, Jasper and I being die-hard gelato fans still got some post-lunch gelato despite the windy atmosphere. I think people were staring at us, but that's not new, they always stare at the Americans. We decided to take our chances at Dover castle. Dover castlewas soooooo windy because it was at the top of a hill. Of course I didn't have a rain jacket so the parts that were outside were pretty miserable. The castle was pretty neat. Really drafty. Would have been FREEZING! in the middle ages. There also were tunnels that were used in the wars such as the Napoleonic wars and WWII. They made all of these tunnels to house troops in case of an attack. Some of the tunnels are under water too. But after we had an Dover castle adventure we came back to our beloved hotel for dinner. And we called the pilot at 8 as usual. And we are not going out to swim tomorrow because it is too windy. So hopefully tomorrow! Keep your fingers crossed! Thanks for all the comments of encouragement!
