Random Wanderings

Ran some errands, so was out and about, but journeyed a bit farther afield for an little adventure.

The weather was clear and sunny but cold and London was determined to enjoy a little bit of that sun —

 

Of course, it was just another day at the station… or was it? Meet my new friends:

He’s VERY photogenic, but doesn’t speak much.

A quick stop to refuel and caffeinate —

Costa’s — because they are reducing their use of plastic!

… and we were on our way!

Playing around with Google maps, we’d tried to find a park, but it turns out that they were on “Winter Hours” and by the time we got there, they were closing in 20 minutes. So a few minutes of staring and scrolling led us on another adventure.

St. Mary’s Church in Denham, turned out to be an intriguing little spot… more on its history here — http://www.speel.me.uk/chlondon/denhamch.htm — and we did get to take a few photos. The grounds are lovely, some of the trees are most impressive:

Hope to go back when it’s open… the doors looked intriguing!

We checked out a local dining spot and the food was excellent. A return trip is definitely called for…

So for now, a bientôt!
