It took two attempts to get Wrexham covered this year but we got it sorted today although the promised cloud cover wasn't that evident as the sky seemed to be clearing but thankfully the forecast held true for once and I managed to record the Wrexham bus scene with some very friendly drivers and no aggro other than one chap who had a general downer on Wrexham and had been chucked out of the bus station. The bus scene is so much changed since our 2016 visit and perhaps not as busy but still one of the busiest in Britain just not as hectic as in days of yore and not quite such a vehicle variety although put all operators together and still more than you find at most locations. It was very mild, I hardly bothered about keeping warm even my open coat was hot to wear. The next part of the day was to stop in Chester on the way back, I'd had a coffee in Neros and walked around Wrexham centre and noticed that about 40% of shops were boarded up, I took some shots to prove it, I think it is possibly the worst I've seen other than Castleford and Pontefract but they do have pond shops and pawnbrokers. As you'll ee I think the Wrexham tourist office must have their work cut out!
Lets have a look at Wrexham buses next, takethis morning.
My brief mention of birds in our garden seemed to spark some interest so lets have a daly look for a while at what is at the back of PMP's office. The other tree orientated bird we get infrequently is the Nuthatch which is the only British bird which moved downwards head first - similar in outline to the tree Creeper but much more colourful.
After covering Wrexham I moved on to Chester, again the light was spot on and friendly drivers, the full photo show tomorrow but here a taster. I've my college course in Chester this evening, a balloon pump was a requirement I fear team building looms!
