Into the Wild | Richmond Park

watchful-eyes

This past Sunday I had the pleasure of visiting Richmond park for the afternoon. The scenery was beautiful and the chilly weather added to the fall feeling!

I had no idea how big this place was until I spent  a few hours walking around and only checked out about a quarter of the grounds.

What was even more surprising was the amount of deer! I loved getting up close in the woods to a family of them, taking pictures quietly so not to startle.

All that cold be heard was the casual dropping of chestnuts from the trees above, likely shaken off by the birds.

I made it to the centre of the park where there was a large pond and old benches around its circumference. It was a great place to rest, put on some gloves and get ready to make my way back as it was getting dark.

It was a great afternoon, and I recommend going if you have the chance. It’s a lovely break from the hectic city life in more central areas of London!

Have any of you ever been to Richmond Park? What did you think? Please let me know!

Easy (Like Sunday Morning) | Living in London

Ahhh. One of the benefits of working a 9-5 job? Having Sundays off. Sweet, tiny victory as you wake up, sans alarm, to a beautiful late-morning sunshine—rare for London.

As I wake, I remember the things I planned to do for the day, and suddenly they seem like distant dreams. Waking up again several hours later, window cracked open, I can hear the music and laughing from outside.

I make a move towards my wardrobe, when I hear the sound of rain pattering down on the pavement, even though the sun is still at its peak.

London weather, eh?

Wearing a dress and rainboots, I embrace the day—heading off to an art fair at Regent’s park. Hundreds of exhibits (and photos) later, I leave satisfied with the creativity I’ve seen.

With Regent’s park just around the corner, I explore for the first time. There’s something tranquil about walking, crisp leaves crunching beneath your feet, as you make your way across the grounds.

The fountains and flowers were remarkably beautiful, and I’m glad I got to experience such a peaceful place.

Do any of you like to take liesurely strolls by yourself? Autumn is such an amazing season for exploration.
