18th October – Staines, The River Thames and Anticipation

24 Oct

1. With 9 hours to fill today, we opted for a late Full English breakfast and very good it was too! We then went on the bus to Staines. There was a lovely mosaic in the bookshop, an interesting sculpture near the shops and a lovely old lych gate to St Peter’s Church.

2. We had a delightful walk along the Thames which was full of water birds – swans, coots, ducks and geese. Watching the swans landing and taking off is always fun.

3. Now we are just full of excitement and ready to be off, flight at 8.45pm. Dehli here we come!

I can’t upload photos for some reason so there’ll be lots to look forward to when we get home!

    I used to work in Staines, before we moved to somerset. It was right by the river and we used to go into the pub along the river some times. Brings back memories

      I’m glad I was able to give you some memories and it’s lovely to be able to picture the river and the pub! 🙂
