The sky was blue and criss crossed with the trails of aircraft - I was glad I was on terra firma and wouldn't have wanted to be going anywhere warm and sunny on this wonderful crisp frosty morning. The scenery had the colour bleached out of it and the shades were faded and subtle with every twig and blade of grass frosted and the sun an orange ball.
The Arch by Henry Moore and had been removed in 1996 as it was structurally unsound but was replaced earlier this year.
Princess Diana memorial fountain as by now it was really freezing and our thoughts turned to something warmer.
Having warmed up from our walk and enjoyed an hour of conversation over a very civilised pot of tea in pleasant surroundings it was time to wend our separate ways home so we parted promising to do Plan B - our plan should the weather have been wet and involving an exhibition at the Natural History Museum - before too long. I hope you are not too cold nor footsore now and that you enjoyed our walk?
