Peter Pan, Mailboxes, and Chester

My oldest daughter, Katia, also had some bad luck on the trip. Disembarking from the MS Ulysses (see Joyce portrait below; on the way back to Wales we sailed the HSC Jonathan Swift, the faster ferry) in Dublin's port, she dropped her camera. Even though the floor was rubberized the camera broke; but she had a few good photos from London to Dublin, including several from Chester (a beautiful little town I'd been in before and wanted the girls to see).
