Chester -is an Ancient walled city founded by the Romans 2000 years age.  I hiked the two-mile walkway around the old City wall.  Pleasure boats and paddle boats are still in use on the River Dee.

Blackpool - Famous English resort on a warm August afternoon.  Note the donkey ride at left, and the effect of the incoming tide.

I took a train to Blackpool crowded with vacationers with huge suitcases, and stood up most of the way.  The tide came in and went out while I was there.  It was amazingly fast.



The Cottingham Brass Band performing in York Town Square.  Beautiful Music!   Especially the French Horn solo "Believe me if all Those Endearing Young Charms..." an old Irish folk Tune.  Also the trumpet solo "Goodbye to Love."
