A beautiful place I grew up in

I've lived in many places. But Chester in December takes some beating. Crisp air. Blue skies. Crowded streets. We are lucky, those of us who live here.

A town hall that once was

Times past

Both Roman and folk memories here.

Coffee is my vice though ...

Good coffee even more so.

Bridge Street

Heading towards the Cross

Alleyway and building society

Entering Northgate Street

Spire

Thank goodness for that ...

At least the Cathedral's Refectory is closed today - Good Friday. Not too many places which care. Just another day to make even more money for most.

Time for a coffee in the Cathedral Refectory.

Rise and shine

I've been waking up so early lately as the sun streams in through my window. It's so good to meet up with the balmy warmth of the sun again. The birdsong completes the circle and makes me think of good memories and times.

Morning at the Station car park

Beautiful morning in Chester today. I must be an urban sun-worshipper!

Sky over Waverton

2-2 at half-time. Girls are much more motivated. Lovely to see.

Bit of a chill in the air though.

Coming home sky

Motorway sky (III)

Sun, car and pylon

Quite like this photo. Timing is difficult with my mobile phone as there is quite a lag between pressing the button and the photo being taken. But this time it all came together.

Been a long day. A long few weekends in fact. Spent most of my time building flatpack furniture. Not long to go before it's finished. Looking forward to reclaiming my weekends, in fact.
