Our cruise left Dover in Kent UK. Since everyone has heard of the white cliffs of Dover (Bluebirds over and all that) I was looking forward to getting some pictures. Unfortunately, it’s one of those photo things where one time of day is better than another. In our case, we departed fairly early in the afternoon and the light was a bit dull. I did get a nice shot of the castle and the beach from our verandah.
As we left I was hoping for better shots of the cliffs but they were predominantly in shadow so these are the best I could do.
This one gives you a sense of scale for the cliffs. I’m not exactly sure where the above shot was taken but I think it was just a bit north of the South Foreland Light seen below. This was the first lighthouse in the world to use an electric light.
That’s interesting because I used to live near the first lighthouse in the world to be powered by it’s own nuclear reactor! It was also know as ‘L’ mark to the Magothy River Sailing Association.
