The Past

The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

River Thames - Richmond, London

This weekend saw the family down in Richmond, Surrey for a wedding.

Richmond is a very pretty place - the River Thames flows through the centre of the town

Here is the River Thames ..

Nearby can be found Hampton Court and Kew Gardens .. Just a short journey away ..

Central London can be reached by the Underground in about 40 minutes ..

Southern England has had a lot of rain this spring and the fields near the banks of the River Thames are flooded ..

Lots of boats on the Thames - it is possible to take a pleasure boat up into London ..

A nice area !

Interesting shots of the activity along the River Thames. The colorful smaller boats with the bridge background is my favorite.

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
