In the Maxjet Lounge at Stansted

You've probably realized that I'm putting these all together now I have
decent internet access.

Malcolm was kind enough to allow us to use his computer and dsl connection
in the cottage, but I had to download the pictures to a memory stick to
plug into his cpu to get them on line, so I decide to wait till I had
better access to put up the rest.

There are more to come of our last couple of days in London, but I thought
I'd take a break to say a little about the lovely Maxjet Lounge we are
currently sitting in.

We dropped off the car (way too early of course- I always do that), and got
through security etc. with three hours to kill, so here we sit, Crispy
playing Gameboy, Jake on the other laptop and me doing this. It's very
comfy with free wireless internet, plugs for the laptops, and lots of
snacks, drinks etc of all kinds.

It's now 1305 and they've just made the last call for the Maxjet flight to
Washington (the plane in the background out the window), so we'll
hopefully be boarding in about an hour. If you're gonna have to sit and
wait it's best to do it in comfort!

Back to London, 8/28

But we did some nice posing with the cliffs in the background

We stopped for lunch on the cliffs, but this place was closed- boo!

And this is the garden!

This is G'Ma & G'Pa's room and bath

I promised some more pics of the cottage- so here you go. Sorry about the wierd perspectives, but the rooms are small so the fish-eye lens is the only way to get everything in.
 
This is our room (Jake,Crispy, Josh and I) and bathroom

Deal, 8/24

After the excitement of the golf we went for a quiet stroll around Deal castle

Deal, 8/24

Then Crispy, Josh and I played a round on the world's worst crazy golf course in Walmer

and a couple more

Deal, 8/24

Jake, Crisp, Josh & I went to the Leisure Centre this morning- no pics I'm afraid, but fun in the wave pool and on the worlds slowest waterslide.
 
This afternoon better weather- so off to the beach to walk between Deal and Walmer. These are some random pics

Dover Castle, 8/23

Then, while we weren't really paying attention, just for a moment, the sun really did come out!
 
Wonder what tomorrow will bring?

Dover Castle, 8/23

This is the keep, and us after touring the Wartime Tunnels (where they don't allow photography)

Deal, 8/23

Then everyone wanted to run about on the pier in the sunshine

Deal, 8/23

It's a lovely caff- I can't think why they want to knock it down at the end of this summer and build another one
