Day 4: - Wales, Castles and Bath!

Today, we headed down south, originally via Manchester and Birmingham, however (thanks to a couple of chaps in the bar last night) suggested we drve via Sth Wales! So I quickly got the laptop and planned my route... However, 'Myrtle' (our TomTom) thought otherwise, so I had to program her to fit into OUR plans! Doesn't she know that I want to go in another direction yet!??!??

So we head off early, and soon we were in the country side. Rapidly approaching a bridge very similar to that of our very own Sydney Harbour Bridge!

In no time at all we were nearing Chester, and I asked if there was anyone who wanted to stop. I have a car full of, "it doesn't worry me' so I made a somewhat executive decision (assisted by Julie) that we will stop! We were so glad we did!

After looking through the bare streets as nothing was open yet, we headed for the Cathedral. Again, this is a stunning place, but have a look what mum found!

My father's name is very similar to this, so I will be sending a copy of it to mu aunt to see what she may or may not know about it...

Soon, as we only had 90 mins here, we were off on the road again, stopped briefly for lunch at a roadside diner thingie. We stumbled across an old castle, and whn I can remember the name, I will post it then.

We stopped once more for a refreshment before the final leg into Bath, found the Hotel and having dinner...

I am very tired after having driven all day, so I am signing off for now!

  1. These are fabulous! I wondered about the side trip into Wales. I love the shops fronts in Chester. It looks like a movie set almost! In many ways it is good you got there early as you got that clean shot.
    Hope you are having fun today!
