Another page from my diary, detailing our last summer’s adventures with visiting Singaporean friend “Velvetine”.

We are back on the road, heading south towards the channel tunnel,  but with a little careful planning and a lot of luck with traffic, arrive early enough to stop off at the harbour in Folkestone to sample some of the fresh seafood from Bob’s Seafood stall on the quayside.

I didn’t notice the sign on the side of the stall last time we were here… it raised a giggle for the refreshing honesty of it’s humour.

Himself and Velvetine indulged in the shellfish mixture of goodies and crab salad, whilst I delighted in the smoked mackerel one last time before we leave.

Since we had allowed a little extra time for possible traffic delays between Canterbury and here, and there had been none, we also had enough time for Himself to zip into a local supermarket and stock up on a few British foodie treats. We also drove up the hill a little so that we could try and catch a proper glimpse of the white cliffs of Dover, since last time we were here there was sunshine but also a thick sea mist, but the English weather conspired against us once again and we could only catch a glimpse through the rain shower clouds and fog. In the drizzle of the English weather we take to the road once again…
