    Arriving in the dark we found Marine Parade in Dover to be an ideal spot for overnighting before, or after, a ferry crossing. There are no services but its free. About a dozen vans were there at the same time as us so it seems very popular.

    The morning daylight confirmed what a great spot this is! Just a stone's throw from the beach and with a great view of Dover harbour with all its ferry comings and goings whilst enjoying breakfast. I wanted to try out a new lens on my camera so I stepped down onto the rock hard frozen pebble beach to capture the wintry beach scene.
