Started in London at 8am, then to Canterbury and the Cathedral, lunch on the White Cliffs of Dover, a stoll around the ancient Cinque Port of Rye, then on to Battle where the Battle of Hastings took place and ending the day in Brighton, known as “London-on-Sea” which is, indeed, the English “San Fransisco” !
As I write this I am indulging in Day’s superb Chinese Buffet in East Street, just off the Sea Front – in fact I am on fire with the chilli chicken !
