More of Chester

We decided to hop on the bus and go back into Chester this morning. Nothing very exciting, just a visit to the '3' shop to amend my phone contract, a bit of shopping and then completing our circuit of the city walls. Ray did buy me a very unseasonable present of a remnant of fur fabric, just about enough for me to make myself a jacket.

When we returned to the boat we decided to move on so we could let the cats have a bit of freedom. Easy going as there weren't any locks but slow because there are so many moored boats, I think that one stretch here is the longest continuous lenghts of moored boats we have encoutered anywhere.

We eventually moored up just short of Tattenhall Marina, a bit noisy because of the closeness of the railway but nice countryside apart from that. Lousy internet signal here so this probably won't show up until a lot later.

Tomorrow we should get quite close to Nantwich.

Today's journey 5.2 miles

This year we have travelled 103.3 miles, 84 locks and 13 lift bridges

Since Ray retired we have travelled 841.7 miles, 729 locks, 55 swing bridges, 17 lift bridges and 25 tunnels.
