We were so excited about taking Birdy to Chester! Her first trip on the ferry! However last minute ferry complications meant we had to leave her behind and go on the train! Little M was heartbroken but there was nothing we could do. Connor and Annas wedding celebrations were going ahead with or without us and we wanted to be there so what could we do?We were glad we went ahead as we bumped into my dear Aunt Gina and her daughter Ger on the ferry which was a wonderful surprise! Sorry Birdy, maybe next time! Little M soon cheered up with promise of a visit to Chesters famous sweetshop and a bit of shopping for summer gear. So off we went!
I love Chester, its so lovely with its tudor buildings, muddy canals and stunning scenery surrounding it. It has so much to see (and snap!) that the day we had wasn't enough so we will definatley be back, not only of course to see Connor, Anna and Cian who always make us feel so welcome!The next day we enjoyed a leisurely stroll along the canal with Connor and Cian before heading home... which had a few dramatic moments but overall was a peaceful lovely walk!
