Dungeness, Kent

A little excursion to the south east tip of England on the 31st May bank holiday.

We visited the area around Dungness, with Emily’s parents accompaning us:

This area is one of the largest shingle expanses in the world. There is no doubting the area, with it’s vegetation and shingles, has natural beauty; yet bleak would be an equally apt description.

The area is home to two of Britian’s Nuclear power stations.

I’ve not been a place like this. Primarily due to the Nuclear Power stations, the surrounding landscape is only sparsely dotted with former fisherman cottages, many of which are now used as holiday homes (actually this is a guess on my part, however I can’t image many people wanting to spend an English winter here).

    So the spelling mistake … was that conscious or subconscious?

    subconscious…but re-reading it now, it makes perfect sense
