wild rhino near the roman gardens
walking along the walls with view of Wales in the distance
we had a lovely day out today and visited chester..we walked the whole length of the city walls and saw lots of rhinos all painted in a variety of colours...today was the last day that they are on view before being autioned off for charity. It was such a lovely warm day and we had a great time feeding the ducks and swans. I really liked looking at the old sandstone roman walls with all their textures and rusty colours. I am hoping to create something rusty for the alter it monthly challenge this week so it was good inspiration. My sons made some pot pourri "tussi mussi" full of rose, lavender and dried rosemary and climbed to the top of several towers. I had forgotten what a lovely place chester is but as I sat by the river dee today I remembered rowing a boat with my dad as a child and nearly colliding with one of the steamboats! hope you have had a good weekend..do share what you have been up to!
