Peace and Scenery

When I moved from where I was to where I am now, just over a year ago, I wondered if I’d find any of those gem type places you come to discover and love when you’re familiar with somewhere. I loved my woods for quiet walks and places to ponder. (Some of those pictures are on my flickr pics under ‘Sunday wander’). But what was there going to be moving to just east of east London? Well for starters I have the Thames! Not a quaint little stretch of scenic river but a wide meander in the industrial zone – and I love it. Perhaps during this week’s holiday I’ll be able to take some pictures to post.
But what I’ve also discovered, up the road and into the country a bit, is a Country Park and it has all the promise of space and peace that I enjoyed in my beloved woods back ‘home’. The day I took these photos TeenSon and I had hired mountain bikes for a couple of hours and so explored properly.

  1. I can’t believe how beautiful the views are in an area I tend to think of as fairly built up and industrial! Love the pond pictures.

  2. Thanks for the comments – it is beautiful – though it’s not in London. I live in what certainly is, Ferijen, a built up and industrial area, as you work your way along the Thames, but if you go “up the road and into the country a bit” (as I put it) you get out of the built up zone and into this! I did have to drive for 15 minutes or so to find it, whereas my ‘old’ woods I could walk to from home – but at least I found something vaguely accessible from here!
