Folkstone, England

Early morning in Folkstone before heading to the cruise ship in Dover.
We could have had take away for the ship, but darn, they weren't opened yet!

Ivon and I were up way before dawn (still on Oregon time). It was beautiful watching the sun come up.....

We got into a taxi after a few hours and headed the short distance to Dover.
The white cliffs are unbelievable!! They are so the ship headed out to sea they were playing the song, "The White Cliffs of Dover". It made me think about those that were returning home from World War 2, what they were thinking as they saw these cliffs and knew they were home and hopefully to be reunited with their loved ones.

The trip we took to Eastern Europe touched me to my core. The things we saw and learned. Many from those that had family that lived the nightmare of Hitler and then communism. We are so blessed and we can never forget what happened. Eastern Europe was so beautiful, the medieval towns and villages were my favorite. I love reading about the ordinary people of this time period. Much of this trip was a dream come true.
