    Chester Family

    January 7, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌬 55 °F

    One of the reasons to come this way was to reconnect with family. Colin was my moms cousin. I remember Adel and I playing at he and his wife Gail’s house about 1975 (yikes that was a long time ago). Had a wonderful very long lunch with Colin, Gail and a very tolerant Marc who listened on about family he never met.

    Cheers to Family. Who are stuck with me no matter the challenges.

    Chester- Canals

    January 7, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 50 °F

    Stephen and Amanda said they would be game to take a narrow boat along the canals of England with me. These locks are one of the man-powered devices that would be a requirement of the trip. Something that will take a little planning to get done, but definitely doable.Read more

    Chester-Friends Romans and Countrymen?

    January 7, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 52 °F

    The Romans were busy throughout Britain building walls and forts. Of course all that building required that the men keep clean. These are the remnants of Roman baths complete with heated floors and water. The romans also brought with them construction with mortar and rock. The English quickly utilized the building technique and stone construction took off.Read more

    Chester- Minerva Temple

    January 7, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 41 °F

    The only remaining Roman built memorial to Minerva, Goddess of Wisdom, remaining in England. It’s found at the site of a Roman stone quarry. Although it looks like a little room it’s actually a solid rock. A fun place for an active imagination.Read more

    Chester - Walled City

    January 7, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☁️ 48 °F

    Walked 3/4 of the way around the City on the walls. Past gates, canals, warehouses and even a falconry. One of my favorite cities on this trip. The city has been around forever and has more history than will fit in a couple day visit.Read more

    Indianerland

    May 15, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Nach einer eher unspektakulären Autofahrt mir hohem Verkehrsaufkommen haben wir unser Nachtquartier erreicht. Auf einer weitläufigen grünen Wiese mit großartigen Ausblick auf den See Coneston Water hatten wir das Gefühl im wilden Westen gelandet zu sein. Einfach wunderbar! ♥️🐑🌍Read more

    Last minute pimping...

    May 14, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    De achterste demper zonder functie heeft een oversteek van de rivier niet overleefd.... weg ermee dan maar. Gelukkig een handige teamgenoot 😂

    Misschien kan hij er een extra uitlaat onder plakken, terwijl hij daar toch onder ligt. 😎

    Anderton Boat Lift

    August 22, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    Boat lifts were used if there wasn't enough room for a staircase lock to be built. This one, called Cathedral of the Canals, was built in 1875 between the river Weaver and the canal. It has two caissons (tanks) of water in which the boats float. Then the lift brings the boat 50 feet to the next level.Read more
