Back to Chester

We got the replacement gas cylinder from Morrisons and were able to have a cup of coffee before setting oof for the return journey to Chester, I forgot to say last night how lucky we were with the gas, I had just finished cooking the evening meal as the flame slowly died away, so for that we are most grateful.

We came across a cement boat in the Ellesmere Port basin, it was built during the second world war when steel was in short supply, no one liked them as despite having huge lumps of wood to protect them they were easily damaged.

I would say to anyone coming to Chester that it is worth the short journey on to Ellesmere Port, as a visit to the Zoo and the Museum were both very enjoyable and worth while experiences.
