Hi all

Well this will probably be the last camp K and K that will be based in the mother country, let me say a lot of the convicts do return to the mother country too, apparently there is about 45000 of us here at the moment. So that would mean there would only be 44998 of us soon.

In the last email, we mentioned that we had gone on a weekend trip to celebrate both our birthdays. We hired a car for 3 days and our first thought was to head around the southeast and then head to Brighton. Now that was a little ambitious even for me. Especially for anyone who has been to Dover Castle, or the area around Dover. We spent most of Saturday at the castle and wondering along the beaches below the mighty white cliffs. We navigated our way quite well while leaving London, and we arrived at Leeds Castle ahead of time, quite a spectacular castle, with a collection of dog collars in there museum, weird but true. Also, saw our first albino peacock. It all adds to the experience doesn’t it? Heading off from there, we meandered our way to

and ill look at castles if i want to.
the coast via Canterbury, which is quite haunting of a night, especially wondering around the cathedral,

After being spooked by the cathedral our first night we spent at Hythe a small coastal village a few miles from Dover. Kaz was told she sounded American, that went down well, and so did the bottle of wine and the fish and chips. Dover has a great deal of history surrounding it and it did consume most of our Saturday. From the wartime tunnels that go nine floors deep under Dover castle and into the cliffs, wondering through the castle itself and the famous white cliffs. The pebbly beaches and a perfect blue-sky day.

In the late after we started to head for Ramsgate, but I got us lost in a place called Sandwich and we ended up in Canterbury. Spent most of Sunday morning wondering around Canterbury and were lucky enough to be able to listen to the choir in the Cathedral. We finished off our weekend at Rochester, which is a very cute and historical town, sat and watched a lovely sunset (at 4.30 in the afternoon).
