In the meantime, here are some pictures I took yesterday during my wanderings.
This is The Water Tower of Chester which is conveniently located in a park close to the apartment. The tower was constructed in the 1320s. Its original use was to control shipping and taxes into the port of Chester and because the tower was in the actual river, ships could be moored around the base.
An old-fashioned British phone booth!! Yes, although there are few and far between, they still exist.
And the most important picture of all: my new library card!! Although I'll only be here for a few months, they were more than happy to issue me my own personal card. Aaah...life is good! And yes, this is a shameless plug for the Saturday Writers.
With this I wish you all a wonderful day and good health. And in honor of being told that England invented drinking (with the Irish and Scottish perfecting it) I leave you with this quote from Phyllis Diller:
Good Heath - what my friends drink to, before they fall down.
