Along the South Coast with Zdena (and a bunch of Czechs from Kladno)

Zdena and some of her group in Lulworth
In August we had a visit from Zdena Biggsova and group of teachers from the Czech town of Kladno, some retired, some still teaching. This time Zdena decided she wanted to have a look at the South of England so we went from West Lulworth in the West to East Eastbourne in the East. And of course to London.
