We were welcomed to Chester by this cheerful Roman that looked like he had stepped out from an Asterix book, and hoards of little kids marching behind a Roman legionary all shouting and chanting up and down the streets.
The streets were rather pretty - with lots of old timbered houses and this clock archway that we walked across to get to the cathedral
But it was lovely inside and we had a happy time looking for dragons and green men in the quire stall carvingsmisericords.
Aidan, one of Mom's favourite saints, and who your friend Aidan is named after. He is reputed to have been kind to animals, and is usually depicted with a stag which he apparently made invisible to save it from the hounds.

We are nearly at the end of the holiday now - one more night here and one more on the plane and I will be home.
love to you all
