On Saturday we took the bus into Canterbury and made our way through the arcade to the "green Jesus" on the cathedral wall. We entered the cathedral as a pre-paid group and waited there.

Sandwich Sandwich
The second part of this excursion was a visit to Sandwich. Those who were quick enough managed to find tea shops which had not yet shut. Others walked around among the narrow streets. "No-name Street" was an unusual one. The street was very short, containing only the one shop.
Sandwich Sandwich
We returned to the square in good time to meet the coach. It was originally the market square. The church may also be seen in the background. The final picture showns members of the group waiting in the square to board the coach on our homeward journey.
