More Chester pix

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for your comments, prayers and positive thoughts for Bill and the family at this difficult time, they are very much appreciated by all of us. Please do keep them coming.

Because I've not been into the studio yet this week, today I'm sharing some more pix of Chester that were taken on the same day as the one I shared with you in the Our Beautiful World ~ Time post. In comments on that post, Di mentioned how much she loves the city, so I thought I'd share some more of it with you.

This first one is of the West Window of the cathedral, taken from Town Hall Square...

This one is of the Eastern side, taken from the gardens...

Now down on the river Dee, this is the view looking upstream to the Queen's Park suspension bridge...

and downstream toward the Grosvenor Bridge that was first opened in October 1832, by Princess Victoria of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. Traffic first passed over it in November 1833 and at the time it was built it was the longest single-span arched bridge in the world!

Last but not least for today, the river is one of only a few in the UK which has a completely straight mile and the Chester Rowing Regatta is one of the oldest in the world...

I hope you've enjoyed this peek into more of Chester's history. I'll share more with you soon.

Thanks again for all your hugs, prayers, positive thoughts, they really do mean so much to us!
