Friendship Days


Monday started out dark and dreary.
I gave some thought to looking around a few shops, and seeing what is available now the Christmas season is drawing closer.
Instead, I had a visit from a wonderful friend, a dear lady who has been in my life for many years, and has shared the ups and downs of expat life together.
.
I visited her hometown when I was in England recently. A medieval city founded as a Roman fort in AD 79.
Chester and my hometown share the same county and is a popular tourist destination to thousands of visitors to Britain each year.
It's streets are lined with some of the best timber-framed architecture throughout the land.
We enjoyed a pot of tea, and Scottish shortbread biscuits, as we reminisced and giggled like two school girls.

Well Jo, there is just nothing like it. My mistake was staying in London for four days. I would have had much more fun in the villages and countryside. I need to take a month and travel about Great Britain. That will be my next trip if I go across the pond again. That, and if I can afford the hotels. There is the most cost.

I've never been to Chester, but I always love seeing photos of those timbered buildings.

Jo, I bet it was the best time...to see someone from your life in England. To have time for tea and a few good laughs. I love the buildings in your pictures. Beautiful. Blessings , xoxo,Susie

I really like the decorations on these buildings. Totally different than some that I would normally see.
