Saturday afternoon on Barge Walk, Kingston
Egyptian Geese - lovely colours on her back
We're moored top right on the map about a mile north of the 'You are here' sign where we enter Home Park a place we love to walk
Is George happy? I think he is!
Seen on the overflow ponds east of the Long Water - we wondered if she'd had just the one which I think would be very unusual or if there had been others 'taken' by fish - we later saw Carp over 2' long basking in the shallows in the warm sunshine.
The overflow ponds are often used for model sailing boats
abandoned golf balls
Hampton Court Palace at the end of the Long Water
we continued our walk down the right-hand side
We've walked the length of the Long Water and cut across to the Paddock and exited onto the road
Wisteria in full bloom
We usually re-enter the palace gardens at Lion's Gate but today continued along the road ... we've not been this way before
Bushy Park - we'll explore in there when we move to the Hampton Court moorings in a few days time
The scent coming from what I call the 'candelabras' on the chestnut trees was very heady.
New attraction at Hampton Court - a bit expensive though as it's time limited - 1.5-2 hours (free with palace ticket or £22 for family ticket 2 adults and up to 3 children)
We did stop for coffee and cake though!
Seen from Barge Walk on our way back - a wedding reception on Raven's Ait (island)
... and home.
