There are a few landmarks around the world that furrylittlegnome has built up in her mind as being magnificent spots to see. The White Cliffs of Dover was one of them. From a distance, the cliffs looked impressive, and as furrylittlegnome’s driver got closer, she was expecting more.
The town of Dover, located in Southeast England, is the narrowest point of the English Channel. The White Cliffs of Dover, made of chalk that give the cliffs their white appearance, are over 300 feet high and span ten miles. Facing France, the two countries are separated by only twenty-one miles (34 kilometers), and on a clear day, the French city of Calais can be seen in the distance.When furrylittlegnome landed on Dover Beach, she was a bit shocked at what she saw. Dover is a shipping port, and the White Cliffs and Dover Castle seem to take a backseat.
Gnome can only guess that to see the iconic line of white cliffs, one must be somewhere in The English Channel to really appreciate its beauty. Is furrylittlegnome glad she dragged someone here to see Dover? Absolutely. Is furrylittlegnome a little disappointed with what she saw? Absolutely.
