Round and About

With George out at work all day we only have weekends to get out-and-about .....
we took a long walk on a hot day up the canal towards Chester, along the long, long line of moored boats at Golden Nook and took this picture whilst walking back to the marina on the towpath side

one place that is worth lots of visits is the Ice Cream Farm - there are well over 100 different types to choose from - delicious! It is a proper working farm too and children can feed the calves and lambs, visit the small animal area and more.  There is a good cafe here too which serve very good lunches.
the wild march iris's are now in bloom around the edge of the marina

we paid a visit to the Tattenhall village fair - another hot day with plenty going on for all ages;
we were going to attend the village disco in the evening but found out that it had been cancelled due to lack of support - but it was the day of the first England worldcup match!
So we took off in RnR just the hour or so's cruise to moor just above Wharton's Lock, had a great BBQ, late morning and cooked breakfast on Sunday and a gentle cruise back early afternoon.
these two young swans came to greet us as we arrived and kept us entertained for a good 20 minutes or so

trying out my 10x zoom lens - impressive
what a portrait!
this nosy cow watched us cruise under bridge 110 on the way back!
