Cliveden Gardens

Today we decided to go to Cliveden Gardens National Trust. The weather was reasonable, not sunny, but not raining either. I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t much in the way of bloomage, and so I was pleased that we were members of the National Trust as I’d have been a little upset to pay £9 and not see the colours of the flowers I expected.

London Orbital Look – Stanmore to Hatch End

Off we go again to do some of the London Loop. To begin with it was a little muddy, but after we stopped in a nice pub for lunch, we set off again, but this time the heavens opened. Boy, Oh boy! Did it rain. There was thunder as well. We were all drenched. but at the end of the walk it started to dry out again. Typical English weather.

Unfortunately I didn’t have a battery in my GPS so I can’t tell you where thing were.

River Thames Boat trip Hampton Court to Westminster

Before anyone complains about the number of pictures on this post, I do apologise but this was a 3 hour boat trip, from out in Hampton Court all the way to Westminster (Central London). It was a lovely hot sunny day, and I ended up taking over 700 pictures, I was also trying out a friend’s lens (Canon 28-300L) while he used my Sigma 50-500. It was a long but enjoyable day, starting at 3pm and ending when we got home at about 10:30pm. One thing I did forget was to put my GPS unit on the camera, so unfortunately you won’t see exactly where the photos were taken, however some are fairly obvious once we got into the city.
