Walk Report

Capital Ring Weekend Part 3 - Grove Park to Richmond, Monday 26th August 2013
20 walkers, 25 miles - leader Susanne Waldschmidt
The sunny weather bought out 20 walkers including Colin Saunders, without whose excellent guide to the Capital Ring, I would most certainly have got lost. A more leisurely day. Morning coffee, a picnic lunch in beautiful Norwood Grove and afternoon tea near Wimbledon Park, where the friendly owner of the cafe insisted on taking pictures of us. We must have all looked very photogenic by then!! Then the last stage. Hilary Saw joined us for the walk through Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park. Finally we were back in Richmond and a well-deserved drink in the Orange Tree. 9 of us had completed the whole ring and were duly certified by Colin. It was a great weekend with a lovely crowd of people. Lots of blistered feet but lots of fun as well. It seemed just the right way to remember Peter Saw.
To the 9 completers: WELL DONE!
