Perfect response--I heartily agree.
That's very cool. The tunnel picture looks like it should be in a film.
I was so pleased that that one turned out. It was a little bit Photoshopped to correct the contrast and color, but not much. Thanks!
Your photos have made me want to go there.
It's worth spending a day on the castle, for sure. As far as the hike along the cliffs, well, it's only for the outdoorsy and there are only a few spots where you really get a good view. I'm told it's better to take the ferry to France, because then you get to see the cliffs...and you get to go to France. Two birds, one stone, and all that.
I just added to you to my friends list. Hope you don't mind.
I don't mind. I'll add you back...but only if you explain to me the difference between Rugby League and Rugby Union.
Nifty! I wanna go! Like Alcatraz felt, it looks like sanctioned urban exploration.
Yes, that's what it's like. Except they're a lot less restrictive with their tours. Our tour guide gave us a ten minute intro and then pretty much let us loose to explore the tunnels at our leisure. I remember being hurried around Alcatraz. That was eleven years ago, though.
The saints preserve us from the wrath of the SUPER-CHAV. Wow.
Exceptionally awsome! And foolish me... I just passed through Dover to and from the continent. It's a good thing other people look around sometimes, and even better if they bring film... [note to self made]
Well, I don't think you need to spend all that much time in Dover itself, to be honest. The town is entirely centered around the docks and the tourism at the castle. I suspect that most of the people who come in on the ferries don't exactly linger in Dover. But the castle is definitely worth spending a day (and some film) on.
It gave me a thrill to see the Dover cliffs in the Hitchhikers' Guide movie...I saw the castle when I was there in 91. Wish I'd known there were secret tunnels! It's a cool place.
Still not exactly sure what a chav is, but have a feeling I don't really want to know.
It's difficult to explain chavs without actually being able to see them in their natural habitat. A couple of people tried before I moved here, but the explanations are inadequate without cultural context. I could tell you about typical chav dress and typical chav behavior or make comparisons to American stereotypes but it wouldn't really click until you saw them in action.
Wow! My White Wolf LARP group would have been thrilled to stage scenes here!
It's too bad I can't post video to the LJ galleries. The switchboard and repeater station were made even creepier by the audio tape loops.
I haven't been posting F-O so you're not missing anything. Lemme know when you decide to come back.
Yeah, we figured out that what we should do next time is take the ferry across to France so we can see the cliffs from the channel. But a hovercraft! Jesus, that is super-cool. How'd that happen?
