After a very warm and sunny spring week, Sunday dawned to almost torrential rain! The short run to Dover was against gale force winds and it rained mostly all day. First hassle was an accident on the exit to the Dover Docks that had traffic held back through Customs to Immigration. Then when they finally arrived half an hour later we wouldn't have made the Tenterden section in time for the train.
As we couldn't go on the train we decided to have a scenic ride to the White Dog at Ewhurst, where Claire had booked us the dining room. As we had slightly more people than originally planned we had to overspill into the main restaurant. Lol kindly sat with a group of the French participants out there and Claire and I hosted the dining room "experience". Everyone was pleased with the meal (Egon Ronay was right!) and an amazingly large number chose roast lamb.
