Rhino Hunting in the Suburbs
Chester has had a recent invasion of over 50 5' Rhinos, brightly decorated and scattered around the city. I thought we could hunt some down, as a one off different type of ride. So we did - this is our hunt diary!
12 Rhino Hunters met at the Kingsway Cafe Hunting Lodge, with perfect hunting weather - the strong winds would cover our scent and the warm humid weather would bring them out of hiding!
We set off down Kingsway, and joined the cycleway through the new houses by New Scene Youth Club - a new entrance to many ladies! Following the cycleway we also tried out the new link to the canal, following the latter till we came to the bridge, and followed up through Blacon.
Crossing the old railway bridge we paused and checked out the new mosaic, unveiled at the station only 1 hour previously! So - we had a quick gander (and photo!) before continuing to seek out Rhinos!
Retracing and joining Sealand Road we then headed down ferry lane to cross the river by Saltney Ferry bridge. At the end, due to a mis understanding (when I said left I meant on the road, but some ladies turned onto the riverside path) - so, we all went down there - a new route for me!
Through Saltney, and round Boundary Lane to Lache, where I asked a lady if she had seen any rhinos (not something you can usually ask in Chester!). She had, and so we found Rhino No. 4, African Rhino.
