Summer Evening Parkgate Stroll


When I realised that I’d scheduled my Parkgate stroll on the same afternoon as England’s first world cup game, I thought I might be strolling alone! However, the sun shone, as requested, and there was a great turnout so thank you to everyone who came along- it would have been very dull on my own! We started with the obligatory Parkgate ice cream (well, it would be silly not to!) and very nice it was too, before heading off along the front past the Boathouse and eventually joining the Wirral Way. The Harp Inn provided a welcome spot for rest and refreshment en route, with lovely views out across the Dee estuary before making our way back through the reed beds to Parkgate. Having well and truly walked off the ice cream by the time we returned to the car, a curry at Connah’s Quay finished the evening off nicely, and I think the curry house was very glad to have our custom on what looked like a very slow night for them! Hopefully they weren’t planning on sitting and watching the football either…
