Next time we go to Dover Castle: Memo to self: 'TAXIS BOTH WAYS AND FLEECES!!!'
Sittingbourne Station: Tickets ordered on-line, collected! Sitting in the sun - lovely and warm and sunny
Get to Dover Priory: lovely! Warm and sunny
Taxi up - Fine and only £6:40!
Up there: blowing a hooley and cold to boot!
Nick decided to wear armour to keep warm!
Liam added a waterproof to stop the chilling wind! (so did I, but there's no photos! I had the camera!!)
They both loved grinding corn the Roman way!
No stirrups! Very impressed!
The mighty 'Testudo'
This machine fired melons way over the castle walls in the background!!
And to finish.....Well of course....it's our own little roman soldier!
On the day we......Managed to eat packed lunch (which was lovely thanks to me! Although the pork pies and sandwiches were frozen, the drinks were perfectly chilled)
Walked down - that's a lot of steps and a very steep slope when you do the direct route. Got serious cramp in my left thigh and was thinking Nick would need to flag down a passing motorist for assistance! Did make it in the end!
Monday: Never again. Unless it's by train and taxi both ways!
Monday Addendum: still can't walk normal because of cramp in left thigh
Tuesday Addendum: Would definitely recommend this as a day out! (But I'm still walking funny)
