Just over 16 miles away from where we live, is Hall Place in Bexley, London. We’ve visited this place several times.. it is local, beautiful, peaceful and full of wildlife.

Anyway, on our visit in March 2017 we went on a windy day… you can see the wind blowing the willow leaves and creating ripples on the water as the ducks and geese are gliding down the river Cray.

      1. That sounds so nice! When my son and daughter were little ones, we would go to a city park that had a nice little river running through it. Great fun for the kids to play in the water and catch frogs! ❤️

        1. So many memories are made at these places. My grandson loves feeding the ducks… mind you he got a bit shocked when they all gathered around him, waiting to be fed.. 😀 😀 😀

    1. I haven’t been since we have had the heatwave… I bet it isn’t looking lush now. 😢

  5. I believe you hit the nail on the head with one photo for this interpretation. The wind, the water, the birds and even suggestion that the clouds would be moving too. Donna
