Ever since Cait and I went and spent our lazy picnicking day in Richmond Park last summer, I have wanted to go back and spend some time traversing it. It is so vast with so much to see and explore. So one chilly but sunny Saturday I set off. My mission was to try and get to Kingston Gate and meet a friend but between my phone being a lemon (long story) and me not managing to follow my map app very well, my phone soon died and I was only 10 minutes into what my app told me would be a 55 minute walk.
Having a very good sense of how huge the park is and also noting that even though the map app showed one simple path to follow, in reality, there were many paths to choose from and without the map to assist me there was no way I was going to attempt to find my way. The sun was already setting and with signs like these up all over the place, quite frankly I was a bit apprehensive. In these parts one does not need to worry about muggers but more about stray bullets that were meant for deer!
Here are a few other pictures from my beautiful but short-lived walk in Richmond Park!
