Dover to Calais: VF-2

Stayed at the Hubert House.   Went up the hill to Dover Castle and obtained second passport stamp.  Dover Castle is remarkable and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

The masonry is worth comment as I have never seen such amazing work.  The mortar is reinforced with chinking and the stones all have a unique glassy surface.

(Note: my camera was out of battery, so the above photos are by others)
Toured castle and the Royal Regiment Museum.  The Royal Regiment Museum was very well done.  It was interesting to see how the "American War" was portrayed.  Proudly, it was displayed that the Regiment "won most of the battles against the rebels, but still lost the war..."

Took ferry to Calais.
