Monday Again!

We had a nice relaxing weekend.

American Idol was good, I got lots of great catch up sleep, went to a tough but fun class at the gym, and did a LOT of crocheting!

Yesterday we did a long but GREAT walk from Richmond to Wimbledon Common. WOW Richmond park is just MASSIVE!!! I was amazed as well at one point where Murray had me turn around and look across the park - you could see Central London!!! I could clearly see the London Eye and the Gherkin - cool! It's just strange because I felt like we were in the middle of the country - but that was a great reminder of - nope we are still in London - just a few miles out from the centre! We stopped at the ice cream van and I asked for a 'Mint Cornetto and a water please.' The ice cream man replied 'You said that perfectly darling.' Ha ha ha - I guess he thought I was a tourist:)

We ended our many mile walk at 'The Windmill' which was a tiny little pub/restaurant near the top of Putney Hill, and then caught the bus back. It ended up being a perfect day - sunny - but not hot. And it was fun to walk through the park and see all the different kinds of dogs enjoying themselves in the open space, and we saw a nesting swan!!! There was a orange fencing all around her, and a sign that said this was the first time swans had nested in that park in 50 years!!! So to please keep your distance. Wow that's amazing!

That is so weird...Lee and I rode our bikes yesterday from Wimbledon Common to Richmond Park - and stopped and marvelled at exactly the same view!
