I quite often write about Richmond Park. It is an amazing green space and we are very lucky to live so close to it in south west London. And it is humongous. We try and go once or twice a month for family walks. We seem to explore a new part every time, which keeps the visits from being boring. In fact, when Husband and I tell Moozles and Dubz that we’re going for a walk in Richmond Park, they cheer.
I have previously mentioned that we are trying to have a fitter, healthier family lifestyle. We’re getting the children to walk longer and longer each visit to Richmond Park, and they can now walk for about two miles without much complaint. Last Sunday we went for a walk near Pen Ponds. We saw loads of deer and discovered a wooded area which the children dubbed ‘the deep, dark, woods’. We also saw a few amazing dragonflies. Their bright blue colour looked quite vivid against the green of the grass. We then found the wonkiest bench for a little rest. It wasn’t very comfy, but it made for a good photo.
