A package from England

My dear sister Nina is still in Kent, England on a month-long retreat at the Abbey of Minster, built 1500 years ago! She sent us a surprise package with wonderful gifts from the Abbey's gift shop: a Monastery tea towel, note cards with photographs of the nun who is a renowned sculptress, and of course fine European chocolates. Thank you dear Nina!

She has been able to visit a few places including the White Cliffs of Dover and its extraordinary WWII Museum, nested in the tunnels carved inside the cliffs during the Napoleonic era and used in both world wars. She heard a personal account of the Dunkirk touching story by the guide whose brother was one of those heroic fishermen.
