Grrr.........this is soooo annoying

There's this picture. It's all over Pinterest. It's Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters.

And it doesn't matter how many times you correct it, and explain where it is, the next American comes along and renames it the White Cliffs Of Dover.
Well, I wouldn't like to walk between the two, would you? It's got to be over 70 miles!
One lady who lives within sight of Beachy Head has also told them, and the person who had pinned the picture (and a beautiful one it is too) duly apologized and corrected it.

Guess what? Yep, the very next person came along and renamed it the White Cliffs of Dover! One person even claims to have been there, and is looking forward to going back! I wish him/her luck with finding it. If they go down Town Wall Street in Dover, out onto the A20, and then turn left onto the A259, I'm sure they will - eventually.................

Ah well, it seems most Americans know our country better than those of us who were born and raised here.

I think I'll post a picture of the White House, and call it the Empire State Building
