Today was a pretty good day, a bit cooler, but that was pleasant. It was still shirt sleeve driving weather.
We left the hotel about 9.20 and had an easy trip through Dover & on to Folkstone. We expected problems in both places but the only problem we had was a road closed and a diversion which only had one diversion sign. It was quite fun to see everybody trying to turn round in a narrow street. . We stopped briefly at The Battle of Britain Memorial for some photos.
From there we headed for Dungeness which is a wild desolate place but strangely beautiful and we stopped there for lunch.
It was good going after that apart from heavy traffic as we passed through Hastings, Eastbourne, Newhaven, Brighton & Worthing.
The only trouble today was on the way to the Hotel, the front throttle jammed open and the revs rose dramatically. Conscious of the age of the clamp bolts I nipped them up a bit but obviously not enough as it happened again. This time I seem to have won on this job as it didn't happen again.
Take an old couple and an even older car, add in over 4000 miles of driving and this is the result. This is the story of Numbum's drive round the UK coastline, driven by Owen and ably navigated by Pam. We hope you enjoy the journey. We will.
