Chester, England

While visiting our cousins in England we took a tour of the old roman town of Chester, England.

The old roman wall that protected the city still stands and makes for an enjoyable walk.

Unfortunately the ponies weren't running this day.

The architecture was fantastic and different from anywhere else we have been.

As it was the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 there was a parade to honor the victims of which many were British.

The continuation of the parade.

A view down the main street.

The king and I, standing in the same spot.  Only 365 years apart.

On the 10th anniversery of 9/11 we were visiting our cousin and went out for American BBQ
