Richmond riverside on a hot day - # 08/105

Last Saturday was unusually hot for the time of year, a bit muggy and soporific and although the sun was strong, there was a bit of "London Overcast" which is normal in these conditions.

A whole battalion of tourists and locals are seen here enjoying the delights of the riverside. "Personal Space" was ignored as we all ambled along the tow path, jostled and dodged each other, a bit like busy ants .......... (The real ants decided that this was the moment to invade my kitchen. Ants obviously have highly advanced communication skills.)

P.S. look closely near the bottom and you will see one of the bizarre and poignant rose stems I showed in the post of a few days ago.


  1. Hi Roon! Here I am for the weekly visit… ;)
    The hot day picture is quite nice, even if a bit hazy... but the model is awesome! Far from Shangai, it seems... ;)
    The pictures of the Isabella Plantation are superb!
    Thanks for your comment on Blogtrotter, which has now landed in the imperial town of Marrakesh, the Red City!
    Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

  2. Gorgeous - this is exactly how I remember Richmond (a million years ago, around about the time the wheel was invented probably, I went to uni at Royal Holloway, so we quite often came into Richmond for a little trip).
