\We have to sent my daughter to her hostel in Kent. I took this opportunity to visit the Canterbury, Kent. Enjoy ourselves at the Canterbury castle which the entrance is free. and would love to visit the Cathedral but the entrance fee is 11.00 gbp per adult. We weren’t keen to visit the church so we walk around  the town and had our lunch.

We drove to Blean, a national woodland and it is another half an hour drive to reach Blean and have 5 different entrance to this woodland and it was almost 4.30 p.m. It was too late to wander around in the woodland and drove to Herne Bay.

A small seaside town in Kent. Herne Bay’s seafront is home to the world’s first freestanding purpose-built Clock Tower, built in 1837; from the late Victorian period until 1978, the town had the second-longest pier in the United Kingdom.

Its popularity as a holiday destination has declined over the past decades, due to the increase in foreign travel and to a lesser degree exposure to flooding that has prevented the town’s redevelopment.

Walking along the Pier and waiting for the sun to go down as it was a cloudy day. I had to wait for about one and half hour for the sunset.  After taking some photos and it was time for me to pack up as we had four to five hours to drive back home.
