"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Au bord du canal


This is what's been happening near my supervisor's place of work over the last couple of years and now, all of a sudden, one block is finished.
You can see more building work further up. Unfortunately, land is expensive and valuable in Chester and the tendency is to snap up and build on ever more.
Menawhile, the swans, having learned last year that building their nest in the nearby boatyard resulted in their babies being carried off by the local fox, have changed their location. It remains to be seen whether this is a wiser choice but they seem to be settling in quite nicely at the moment.

I don't recognise that view, where is it?
We were back in Chester a few weeks ago, I was suprised to see that the bus station had gone and replaced by by an hotel, offices and flats.
