The sun was shining again though the wind was still bitter. We set off into Chester to find the sightseeing bus. We like these buses and have used them in major cities across Europe.

We weren’t disappointed in the Chester bus and both drivers we had were very friendly and helpful. We took the bus from the bus station and meandered down to the river where we got off to see the amphitheatre – having been to the Coliseum I have to admit we felt more than a little let down! We wandered along the river a little way until we came

Just in case Muffin wasn’t tired enough we took him for a walk round the racecourse again. The racecourse is known as the Roodee and is, according to official records, the oldest racecourse still in use in England. Horse racing at Chester

On our return to Mary H we had new neighbours – Katynka who we had met in Liverpool last year. We invited Ian and Diana in for a drink and a very enjoyable evening it was too.
