Well we've just got back from a most glorious weekend in Chester. Haven't been before but can highly recommend it. We arrived in the early afternoon on Saturday and took a walk into the town, or is that city, sorry for my ignorance! We wanted to see what there was to do and to plan out our itinerary for Sunday.
Needless to say our first priority was to hit the CS, knowing that these would be closed on Sunday. Although there was not a great variety of treasures on offer I did manage to find some little bargains. I have been looking for some plates to drill to create a 3 tiered cake stand as I have purchased a handle and the drill bit for the job from Ebay. I wasn't disappointed although I still have to find the right plate for the top tier.
This was my complete haul
The bottom tier
The middle, got 6 of these so can practice the drilling!
Was thinking of the small plate for the top but as these are a perfect set of 3 will keep just to use for tea with my other mismatched beautiful pottery, but you get the idea...
A super little dish
And finally a crisp linen drawn thread tablecloth.
On Sunday we decided to walk the whole of the city wall and it was well worth the aching feet
The views were stunning and the architecture amazing
The stunning cathedral
And the river views
Finally today we headed off to Ellesmere Port for some real retail therapy and returned home via the Snake Pass.. wow!
Well as you can see we managed to fill our time and the beautiful destination together with our lovely company made it a real weekend to remember and Oh no, we've got to do it all again in four weeks time .... in Bath.
Well I hope you have enjoyed sharing our journey. Back soon with more places and finds.
By the way we did manage a few bottles of wine as well. Cheers!
