A lovely weekend, so we decided to head to Polesden Lacey in Surrey for a little afternoon visit. Again National Trust (getting good use of our membership this year). Some lovely views, and a house that covers the phrase “how the other half live”.
Went to Guildford today so that one of my sons could take a look at the Academy of Contemporary Music as he is considering going there for a degree or a diploma. While he was there, I decided to walk around the city (it has a cathedral, so it is a city), and take some pictures. I started by walking along the canal, then into the old city high street, and then off to the castle ruins. Love the pictures around the castle, the light was less harsh by then.
I have been planning a trip to Richmond Park to see the deer, but decided to head to Bushy Park instead. I am glad we did, as the colours were lovely, and we saw a great herd of deer, and you could tell which was the head buck. It was difficult choosing the pictures for the web site but here’s what we have chosen. Hope you like them…
Wanted to see more Autumn colours, so we took a trip to the Winkworth Arboretum. This is well worth a trip. Loved the colours. Some trees had lost their leaves, but some hadn’t turned yet. But I can’t grumble as to the scenes we saw. I hope I’ve done it justice with these pictures. There’s one picture that is a panorama of 12 pictures, but it will be downscaled for the web. I am really quite pleased with that one. But there’s others where the colours are much better.
