Walk over Fairlop Waters

As it was a bright day on Saturday, we decided to make the most of it by going for a walk up to Fairlop Waters to enjoy the countryside before the bad weather set in.

Long walk over Fairlop Water

Making the most of the good Sunday weather (after a very dreary Saturday), we went up to Fairlop Water for a long walk. We went past the memorial for the old WW2 airfield, and as it was remembrance Sunday we went to see the poppies laid at the memorial and noticed that one is presented by the Norwegian Embassy in memory of Jens Herman Gran which was nice to see. We had a coffee outside the Cafe at the Activity Centre before heading back and continuing our walk down through Seven King's Park.

On Sunday evening we went to The Victor Cafe where opera students are the waiters - Very different! We then got an Uber cab home with a taxi driver who had studied economics in Oslo!
On Monday before heading home we visited Longwood Gardens to enjoys the flowers and Autumn colours.
