There’ll Be Bluebirds Over…

This blog post is a bit delayed, but I know the family and mom’s friends will want an update of her summer holiday; that and some of the photos turned out really nice I think.

Last Monday, we decided to hop in the car again and head to East Sussex.

In the morning we drove to Bodiam Castle, probably the only castle I’ve ever seen still surrounded completely by a moat.

Built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dalyngrigge, there isn’t much left inside the castle.

But Josh had a great time running around, climbing up the towers and exploring the castle.

In the afternoon, we headed further south into Kent and to the white cliffs of Dover.

The cliffs were beautiful, but from the hike along the top, I felt you couldn’t really see them that well.

Thankfully, Tim indulged me and we made the tiring hike down the cliffs to the beach.

Close up, the cliffs really are white, almost like a chalky rock which comes off on your hands when you touch it.

All the effort was worth it to see the cliffs from the beach, looking up at them.

At least I thought so.

Poor Josh had already fallen asleep by that point.
