I spent yesterday in Canterbury with friends. It was nice to get out of London and explore a little. The weather was not so pleasant, it was cold and drizzly.
We explored the Canterbury Cathedral: during our walk David and I heard a chicken inside the library, sadly the door was locked and we could not get in. The Cathedral features sensor activated doors; I take that is part of where the 7.50 entrance fee is allocated. There is a sculpture by Antony Gormle, TRANSPORT, which is the made entirely of nails and outlines a human body: made me note how easily things can pass right through us. After the Cathedral we walked around a whole lot more, eventually landing at the Canterbury Museum.
It is in fact a wonderful museum, they have very nice interactive displays: my favorite kind. They have, on display, a newspaper published during the Blitz, informing readers on the difference between German and U.K aircraft, in structure and color scheme. There are articles advertising ‘War Savings’ and soap being produced in I WHITE. And to my surprise they have a section dedicated to Rupert Bear: fantastic! It is always so nice to feel like a kid.
