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.

London Orbital Loop – Next part of section 16

The London Appreciation Society was off on another bit of the London Loop today. Generally it was a fairly nice day, but we did get sleet dropped on us at one point, and there was a fair amount of mud. But this section High Barnet to Elstree was through fields, woods, and nice areas. This section didn’t have much in the way of roads to walk down, so most of the pictures are of ‘green areas’. This part covered about 7 miles.
