|look at that blue sky!|
We set off towards Mickle Trafford, but not on the Greenway in case of patches of ice, and then round to Guilden Sutton, A51 and skirting Christleton to pass through Waverton.
|arriving at Walk Mill - I always think it has such big skies here.|
Walk Mill is our usual Christmas/early Dec venue, as it is not too far out, and often people are so busy they cannot afford the time for themselves this time of year.
We settled down to our coffees, teas and cakes; chat and social bit, before heading back out to the bikes.
I have previously taken a pic of the ladies by the door of the mill, as they usually have a festive wreath on the door. but with no wreath, and similar pictures in past years, this time I tried something different. It took a bit of doing, trying to entice the ladies onto the bridge to pose in front of the water wheel, and to coerce Caroline out too (baby due Dec 24th!). See if you can spot her!
(I can barely see her and I know where to look!)
We headed back to Chester via the canal - because it was such a nice day and it is so lovely along the canal!
