Lorna's time to blog. My original title summed up our challenging travel day: WE DID IT! But after we finally arrived my fellow adventurers suggested we change it to "We're in Heaven"--our Chester river house.
However, most of the day was spent in Purgatory again:
12 days--oops, hours--of travel, starting out in rain
2 ferries, 1 bus, 4 trains (including a harrowing 7-minute connection at Haymarket)
And, shall we say, more than a wee bit of confusion over the need to book seat reservations in advance. No chance to enjoy the 1st-class experience we thought we had paid for....
But we are here! Ensconced in our beautiful house overlooking the river Dee in Chester
and sipping wine our host returned with as a welcome gift after meeting us at the station and lugging our bags up the narrow stairs.
Heaven with nectar!
And tomorrow night, the Chester mystery plays....
