I just wanted to make it clear that I have never personally weed in a phone box, although I have on many occasions been forced to stand in a puddle whilst phoning someone, back in the "good old days" before I had my own phone. They look quaint from the outside, but the smell of the interior is something never forgotten. Why??? Red phone boxes were permanently illuminated at night and you have to stand in your own.... I never got that one.

Its a long time since I visited Canterbury - more than 30 probably when my parents had a caravan on the coast- but it doesn't seem to have change that much. You have caputured the mood really well.

I thought of going to Falmouth for college but decided on Bath Academy instead. Falmouth seemed a long long way from London at the time. Now it would seem like a day trip after living in TX. LOL
