Hi everyone, yep you might have guessed it....another castle...there do seem to be quite a few in these parts. The Leeds Castle is privately owned and is actually quite modernized...not as interesting as Windsor or Warwick, but still quite an attraction on the water. The English are big fans of their jousting matches and such and today, like yesterday at Warwick, there were people galore around to watch the "re-enactments" of jousting matches from days gone by...we then drove on to Dover and stopped to see the White Cliffs and also catch a glimpse of the English Channel. We then drove to the little village of Denton where we stopped for lunch and tea at the Jackdaw, a traditional English pub. Our lunch consisted of finger sandwiches with no crusts, biscuits with jams and clotted cream...Nick tried the clotted cream while I just had butter...oh, how boring. We then made our way to Canterbury where we toured the Canterbury Cathedral, the place where Thomas Becket was killed and buried. This Cathedral is amazingly huge and has two levels and numerous prayer rooms in the lower level. Cheerio
