Chester

Had a touch of beer flu this morning following yesterdays Christmas boaters get together, I can't remember the last time that happened, it was possibly the mulled cider with rum or the mulled wine with whisky that Dot made that did it.

There was a frost first thing this morning but we missed it, we didn't surface till 10:30! As it was a bright sunny day we decided to go for a drive to Chester as we have heard it is  a pleasant place to visit.




Chester really is a handsome city

 Sand sculptures


Eastgate  clock apparently the most photographed clock in England after Big Ben

Built to commemorate Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee.



Another gate!


Walking around the City walls


The River Dee


We had lunch in the Red Rouge Cafe and headed to Tattenhall to check out their marina.
