A trip to the mainland

Hello there - we recently took a trip to the mainland for a couple of days - as we got off the catamaran and were waiting for our coach I snapped the Spinnaker Tower as it had had a facelift with a coat of paint since last we were on the mainland.



 
On we went to Epsom where we had a wander around the park and town

 
 
 
Stunning colours
 
 
Epsom clock tower
 
 
 
These phone boxes are a permanent feature at the top end of the
town at Kingston where we went the next day
 
 
We took a walk along the river and I snapped some things
that caught my eye
 
 
 
A swan having a clean
 
 
 
Some houseboat fun
 
 
We are in Kingston and cross the bridge
 
 
 
There is a cycle path across the bridge
 

 
 
Once across - you are in Richmond
 
 
Walking the path and heading towards
Hampton Court Palace
 
 
Silver birch saplings
 
 
 
 
A tent pitched and all set for fishing
(You can camp for two nights to fish with a permit)
 
 
 
 

 
What lovely properties!!
 
 
A lovely setting
 
 
The outskirts of Hampton Court Palace
 

 
Very regal toppings on the fence

 
Even more regal
 
 
Double fences surround Hampton Court Palace
 
 
Double walls
 
 
A wall you wouldn't climb over
 
 
 
L O V E this snap - ooooohhh the neatness
 
 
a deck chair to sit and rest your weary feet
 
 
The flower bed as you enter or leave
 
 
Through these beautiful gates!!
 
Our walk from Richmond around the park took hubby and I two hours - it was a long time since we last did that walk when our son was at Uni in Kingston.  It didn't seem so far or take as long but perhaps that was because we haven't walked it for 18 years!!  We had a lovely day though.
 
 
 
 
 
And of course I took some crochet with me
 
Thanks for popping by

PS
 
The next day was a trip to London - Why not come back another day for that tour
