Dee Estuary Walk – Parkgate to Hoylake

It was the final day of this wonderful Dee Estuary Walk. A walk around the whole of the Dee Estuary from Prestatyn, North Wales to Hoylake in the Wirral on the northern side. As you have seen on the previous pages the first 3 days were full of variety and amazing sights, this day was to be no different and spectacular with every step. It was also going to be the longest leg, so I had better get a move on 🙂 And a fine place to start the day was Parkgate. It was an early start so was...

A day full of surprises and wonder,...

A Digital Break in the Calms of Cheshire

One thing I always do upon return from a trip is after a great amount of smothering by the hounds I treat them. Being Basset Hounds this does not mean miles and fast but slow and tranquil 🙂 Well, after Iceland I picked them up and off we went down the road to Cheshire, and peace. I even afforded myself a rare weekend of putting the iphone in my pocket, switched off. Does good to take a breather every now and then. Tatton Park was the main event for them, they love it there. I love it there. No...
