River Dee Walk

A family visit to Chester usually means a good walk/bike ride with Andy, but this time with sciatica giving me a hard time something gentle was called for.

So with pain killing tablets swallowed we decided on a flat walk along the River Dee which started from Andy,s home.


As usual there were plenty of people at the Chester end and clearly a rowing event was going to take place.

As we walked towards Frodsham the crowds thinned out. The footpath near Frodsham was closed because of a land slippage and so we turned back watching the various rowing boats heading upstream to their start. It looked hard work with a strong downstream wind and the river just coming off a high level.

Hard work

A little easier

Back near Chester and the footbridge across the river we purchased coffee and cake at on the boat houses - very reasonable and welcome.

By the time we reached Andy's home the pain killers were wearing off, frustrating to say the least.
