Walk Report

London Christmas Walk, Saturday 6th December 2008
20 walkers, 17 miles - leader Lonica Vanclay
Was a beautiful sunny winter's day - cold but completely clear and sunny for the whole day. 17 of us started out from Richmond - following the Thames along to Hampton Court. The Kings Arms was warm and welcoming - though the soup was rather watery - and by the time we had lunch there we had become 20! Back through Hampton Court and we looped our way through Richmond Park taking in a gorgeous sunset and the view all the way back to St Pauls' Cathedral before arriving back at Richmond just on dusk. 10 of us enjoyed the tasty Persian meal and the intrepid indulged in the magic of Peter Pan at the Richmond Theatre - oh yes we did!
