Chester Zoo

We had some very welcome visitors for the weekend, so we headed to Chester Zoo for an afternoon of animal fun, followed by a tasty dinner at the Chester Fields. Chester Zoo had been on our radar of visits for a while, and it did not disappoint. Four hours was far from enough time, so we’ll have to go again when we get an excuse.

All photos taken with my 100mm f/2.8 macro lens, which did a great job.

The Deep, Hull

The morning after Cathy and Nick’s wedding, surprisingly hangover-less, we took the scenic route through the North Yorkshire Moors to meet Adam in Hull, and visit The Deep. While the “submarium” branding is a little pointless, and some of the interactive exhibits are showing their age, the collection of fish are impressive and it was an interesting afternoon out.

Nick and Cathy’s Wedding

Wedding No. 3 of the year took us to North Yorkshire, for a sunny Sunday with Nick and Cathy. Danby Castle might have been in the middle of nowhere, but it was a stunning venue. After a personal, humanist ceremony there was much-needed ice cream and a wedding breakfast containing no nuts, eggs, fish or dairy, yet not consisting of steak and friut salad!

Our hotel wasn’t bad either.
