on ice cream and Parkgate

There is nowhere more lovely than Parkgate when the sun is low in the sky, glinting on the marsh and ice cream shop is still open!!

Once the most important port in the area - far bigger than Liverpool - Parkgate is now stranded behind the marshes, overlooking Wales across the Dee Estuary.

This particular November Sunday, by the time we emerged from a tasty roast at the Ship . . .

the sun was setting (and you can just make out the twinkling lights of Wales ) . . .

but, undeterred, we still managed our amazing Nicholl's ices - yes, on a November evening - outside!!

and had it still been light, this is what the wonderful Nicholls looks like:
