Exploring Chester, West Virginia

We have never been to the city part of Chester so we decided to explore a little today. After my husband singed in for a job he is applying for in Laughlin China and Co. in Newell, we proceeded to Chester.  
We were not able to  stop by  at the "world's largest teapot" but I  got a quick snapshot of it.
We spotted this Veteran's Memorial Park  so we  parked and  stayed a while there.
It was a very nice  little place showcasing the  fallen heroes.
At the back of the park, there  is a small  creek which my Burritos really liked.
Those granite  squares laid out has the names of those who were in the service.  This particular block  caught our attention, the Cline Brothers.  There were five of them who  fought in WW2 and Korean War.  IT must have been a worrisome years for their parents to have five  of them signed up in the service.
Mr. Burrito is not really interested in having his picture taken, he was more interested in   exploring the place hehehe.
One thing that I noticed in Chester is the cleanliness, they keep their  surroundings very clean..

My little man would be like your little man as well. He would be interested in running around and just exploring. Not so much in picture taking. hahahaha.... Looking at your photos mommy makes me miss our road trip. We didn't get to go this year, but hoping next year or so we will get to go. :) Lovely photos and looks like one lovely and interesting place to visit. :)

Five fallen heroes in a family, for the country! Feel very sorry for the parents. But heroes, they all are

Love the teapot. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Love the teapot but must question of it is really the biggest in the world. I have seen a water tower in Nebraska that is shaped like a giant teapot and there is a small water tower in the same town shaped like a teacup.

The park in Chester seems like the kind of place a military man like my Old Salt would love to visit.

Hazel said...

Mabilis ka sis. Gustong-gusto ko pa naman ang mga tea at teapot na yan.

Paula Scott said...

I wonder how much tea they can brew in that teapot!
Yes, I too, would be distraught beyond words if all of my five sons enlisted.
Pretty place you guys ran in to!

Hi Rose, good morning! I don' t know where your ABC entry is, but this is also a nice and colourful one. Thanks for your visit. You asked me what the green thing was on top of one of the buildings. Well that was the dome of the mosque of the Circassians, who are muslims.

This is a very nice post. But five men from the same family all dead in wars, this is sad, I feel sorry for their parents, wives and children.

Have a beautiful weekend,

Chester looks like a Cute Community (as well as Clean!) I Can't imagine the Concern and anxiety the Clines must have felt with so many of their Children serving in Combat.

I love the teapot, how Clever! You could brew a big Cup of Coffee with that! :-)

Really nice! Love the picture of the "world's largest teapot." Love those "world's largest/ tallest/ etc." things in general.

Dear Rose,
Chester's cleanliness reminds me of Canada...I find their streets clean too...such a change from more urban cities. Nice photos. Thanks for sharing & visiting.
