Daily, the fishermen go out to see what they can catch. Almost daily.

Daily, mail is collected from letter boxes around the country. Some have been collecting our mail daily for many years: the one on the right from before 1936, the one on the left from before 1901. Almost daily.

Daily the ferries leave Dover to take passengers back and forth across the English Channel.  Several times a day.

Finally something that happens daily, and once daily, without fail.

The rising of the sun....

And its setting.

I'll be crossing the Channel myself this weekend, though not by ferry.  I will visit you all as soon as I can.
