"All the best things have snow on top" chrishc's Profile

Don't forget your own backyard

Isn't it funny how so many people know so much about other places but ask them about something just round the corner and they're flummoxed!!!

This page has been due an overhaul for a while . . . perhaps I ought toget on with it.

Making a splash

Natalie's 50th birthday surprise

The locale

So many people pass through Dover each day and I bet most of them don't even see the castle!

I have lived in Dover for nearly 5 years now and have a wonderful wife in Natalie who is also a VT member Nhcram.

It's great to have a plan to visit somewhere and browse VT to get a feel for a place and to ask questions and get sensible (usually) answers.

Spring is here

Just liked this view of the setting sun at Whitstable.

Hail 17 July Dover

This morning saw a very sunny start and then it suddenly became very dark and we had a full blown hailstorm. Here are the results on my front lawn.

Some personal views

Great feelings
In no particular order!
Laughing so much you can't stop
Snow kissing your face
That first mouthful of cold beer on a hot day
A cuddle
The buzz through the body having done something strenuous successfully
Getting a rating on VT
Hitting that ball and it goes straight*

    Hi Chris, came across you by accident as i am friends with Vinod. Notice your photo "on top of the world" but where is this? Also i was interested about the fellow on the park bench as it is very similar to a park in Manila where you can see the country's hero Jose Rizal Sitting on a bench! So who was that and where?
    Brought up in Canterbury and Sandwich from 10 yrs old to 20, great trip down Memory Lane looking at your reviews. Actually lived in the Weavers House the Strand Sandwich while Dad was waiting for his house to be built. Last time i took a trip to Canterbury, Dover, Deal, Walmer, Sandwich, Whitstable and Herne Bay was probably around 1985!!! Probably never be there agian but my Filipina wife has a cousin living in Dover!!!

    Enjoyed reading your tips of Canterbury, Dover and Deal, as it brought back memories as i lived in Sandwich and Canterbury as a teenager. Attended Sir Roger Manwood school and Canterbury Tech.
