    Chester Family

    January 7, 2020 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌬 13 °C

    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 ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    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 ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    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 ⋅ ⛅ 5 °C

    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 ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    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

    Trevor, Wales and Chester, England

    September 16, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 14 °C

    We didn't have far to travel from Wrexham to Liverpool so visited the Pontsycyllte Aqueduct in Trevor, Wales. Incredible structure sitting 126 feet (38 metres) over the River Dee at its central point. The Aqueduct has a walkway and a narrow iron canal trough which is just wide enough to fit a narrow boat. We walked across the Aqueduct and watched a narrow boat and some canoes navigate there way across.

    We then had a short drive to Chester, England which has the only complete Roman walled city in Britain. We walked the two miles around the red sandstone walls stopping off to have a cruise on the River Dee and watch the first race of the day at the racecourse from the city wall. The city wall overlooks the racecourse. The Chester Cathedral is an enormous building that has been enlarged over time from its original form.

    Better lake than never!

    August 5, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    After a days rest, we gave the car a treat and took her across the Kirkstone Pass on our way to Kendal, and onwards to Chester. Thankfully the two caravans in our way kindly pulled over so that we could make the most of the crests, curves, cambers and corners. Checked in, in Chester, in time for a long overdue Norman-Harris family reunion, and took the opportunity to sample Chester's ample nightlife.Read more

    A Shark's Tale

    August 7, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    An action-packed second day in Chester; a win at the Races, great-niece Tasha diving with sharks, and a Norman-Harris night out that broke Lucy!

    Chester

    August 2, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Das Klima wird rauer, je weiter wir nach Norden kommen. Das Thermometer fällt in Chester unter 16 Grad im Hochsommer und wird von einem Sprühniesel begleitet. Wir kontern mit einer Shoppingtour, um uns mit wetterfester Kleidung einzudecken, einem Schwimmbadbesuch und verwöhnen uns mit herrlichen Törtchen. Zu einem Rundgang reicht es außerdem: Auf den Stadtmauern erkunden wir das schöne Städtchen mit römischen Garten, Amphitheater und toller Kathedrale. Als Alternative zur klassischen Spendenbox entsteht mitten in der Kirche ein Replik aus Legosteinen. Jeder Besucher kann sich gegen Spende einen Stein kaufen und setzen. Geniale Idee ...Read more
