WOG MOG LE JOG - DAY 4 SHREWSBURY TO CHESTER
Yesterday's Chester visit was fantastic. Stayed at the Chester Grosvenor which is a sensational top flight hotel right in the heart of the city, gorgeous accommodation and sensational food. They even took the trouble to park the Mog under cover to save me going through the difficulties of putting the roof on. Bless.
Chester is famous for its rows - meaning medieval covered shopping zone along several streets, where there are shops beneath and shops above, and you get to the above shops by walking along covered walkways.
It is a gorgeous town.
Chester rows - two tiered shopping, plus clock.
Plus it has the spectacular
Chester Cathedral, a medieval masterpiece.
which is simply huge.
You know, I think I forgot to take a pic of the outside. Too busy gawping at its loveliness.
I had to do a laundry run which led me to enjoy quite a good wander of the town, listening to the cricket on the phoneradio, as you do.
Came across something you just would not see in Oz anywhere.
Buy one AGA oven, get one free!
Well, not quite that grand a sale, but an AGA sale nevertheless.
Strapping one to the back of the Morgan, not being an option, I had to walk on by. But sheesh, they were going cheap alright.
Spent yesterday evening chatting with hilarious Scots folks in the smoking bar at the Grosvenor, getting tips on travel north which I need to undertake soon, and the need to eat Scots Buns or Rolls or some such.
But not before visiting Manchester (replacing Carlisle as the next stop on my LEJOG trip.)
Out peeps. I gotta see if I can fix the placement of thee comments thing. It looks all wrong to my eye.
