Pyracantha Autumn Colours

The garden pyracantha shrubs are a blaze of colour at the moment! The old saying goes that this means a hard Winter is coming....

Walk in Valentine's Park

We went for a walk in Valentines Park, stopping off for a coffee and cake as usual at the Gardeners Cottage Cafe, taking in some of the Autumn colours starting to come out now and the wildlife in the Park.

Siw and Olav staying with us

Siv and Olav have been staying with us for a few day. It was quite a hectic time starting on Friday with a walk through Hyde Park, before heading back through Mayfair, and getting something to eat at The Windmill (having one of their famous pies). Finally stopping off at Bar Italia for a coffee before heading home.

On Saturday, we did a two stop journey, heading first to Bury St. Edmunds, and taking in St. Mary's Church (home of the body of Mary Tudor) where a concert was taking place. We then walked past the Cathedral and the old Abbey grounds, before going into the town centre, passing the Nutshell pub, and having some food at the Scandinavian Cafe, before heading back to the car.
We Then headed onto Maldon, for a walk around the quayside, before stopping off for some food at The Jolly Sailor.

On Sunday we decided to go for a stroll on The South Bank, as the weather looked a little inclement, and our fears were realised when it started raining heavily, forcing us to take shelter in The Anchor!

A few photos from the weekend are below, the rest are here:

A walk in the breeze over Fairlop Water

We took a walk over Fairlop Water this evening. A bit breezy, so we had to keep up a brisk pace. Very pleasant though!
