Sunday in Richmond Park, London
I've been wanting to do more of non Scentsy posts on this blog for a while. Chance for you to get to know me better and it breaks posts up of course. I want a chance to show you more of my photography too. I have another blog but decided what's the point of having all these other websites when I can barely keep up the Scentsy blog I've got.
I went with my partner James to Richmond Park today which is on the outskirts of London. I've been to Richmond Park for running races before but never fully explored Richmond Village and the park or seen the deer. The deer roam freely in this park and there's a lot of them. I think its rather beautiful getting to see these gorgeous creatures doing what they love both and so up close. They are pretty tame and its against the law to hunt or touch them, but they are distant relatives of the deer that Henry VIII brought to the park to hunt. They can just live without any worry and have plenty of roaming space to go.
The leaves were gorgeous and in their full Autumn glory. We got a bit lost and werent expecting the park to be as huge as it was. It took us over an hour to find the exit and then we took the bus back to Richmond Village. Its quite a posh village with gorgeous shops as most people who live here are quite well off. We found a traditional pub along one of the side streets and had a glorious lunch----I had steak & Ale pie with mash which was divine!!! James his usual burger and chips. Apologies we dont have pictures of our visit to the village or our pub lunch.
I feel really good after getting out in the open and definitely want to get back to Richmond. I felt like I had a trip to the countryside literally and I never left London. My head feels clear and snoozed a bit when I got home because of all the fresh air and good pub food.
What did you do with your Sunday?
Here's some piccys of the park:
