2D1NKent- Canterbury Sunday

April 2015

Breakfast was at the bistro next to Premier Inn. It was the all-you-can-eat type of breakfast, serving up the usual suspects like eggs, ham, bacon, toast and whatnot. Kids eat free! But, it wasn’t much of a big value deal for Ryan and Gillian since they only had like milk and cereal.

After breakfast, we returned to the hotel for the kids to have their last soak in the bathtub before checking out. Thereafter, we headed off to Canterbury. The first stop at Canterbury was brand new playground at West Gate Garden. It was a fantastic playground! The kids definitely enjoyed their one-ish hour of swings, slides and see-saws. Since it was Easter Sunday, the playground was also busy with children but the place was spacious enough for the kids to round around without bumping into each other!

Ryan is sure getting more cheeky and playful whenever he is at the playgrounds. He used to be rather timid but since attending school last April, he is much different boy now. He wants to try everything at the playground!

My Topsy and Tim cannot resist swings when they are at the playground. Even though they are exactly two year apart, I have people coming up to me asking if they were twins. Erhmm… Okayyyy…. Hahaha.

Our second stop for the day was the city center of Canterbury. We wanted to visit the well-known Canterbury Cathedral. By the way, we were very impressed by our visit to the town of Canterbury. There was a good mix of the old and new. The architecture was interestingly beautiful. It was a pity that we went there on a Sunday as most shops were closed. 😦 Canterbury definitely deserves another visit soon! Probably in summer and hopefully I feel better in health then!

Canterbury Cathedral is definitely impressive looking. Seriously, it is hard to fathom how people from the past are able to build such magnificent looking towers without the use of modern technology. It was plain breath-taking!

We left the town around 5ish. By then, my legs are aching like hell. It was definitely too much walking over the bank holiday weekend. Ohwells, at least the kids looked like they enjoyed themselves! We are out!
