On a grey and windy day, some pictures from a morning visit to the National Trust’s Polesden Lacey. I’ve no idea who the gentleman in the hat is, but I liked his look. We took the tour, which was extremely interesting, before ambling through the rooms.
Westhumble / Polesden Lacey
If I had known that Polesden Lacey was closed due to a power failure I might have delayed eating that banana and kept it for my lunch.
Westhumble 6 mile walk
It’s a while since I had a decent length walk and so the return of the sun was an incentive to take one on.
Westhumble to Dorking is familiar to me, though today there was an unplanned, muddy detour towards the end. I’ve mapped the walk using Mapmywalk.com. I had a phase of mapping all my walks but somehow I lost the enthusiasm, but now I’m returning to the site to resume mapping.
A walk up Box Hill, Dorking
Nonsuch Park fading light
A lake and two walls
Bushy Park and some new boots
After four grey days we had a lovely, mainly sunny, day that deserved a walk through Bushy Park and the purchase of some new boots. The old boots are 10 years old, have tramped through New Zealand as well as numerous walks in the UK, but they are fit for the bin, and with walks along the Itchen Way lined up, a new pair became urgent.
