The train journey was interesting... got to Clapham Junction where I change trains to find news of the trains towards Hounslow (where my Kew train ends up) were disrupted due to an "incident" This normally means a jumper on the track but apparently it was a trespasser, not so traumatic for the train driver!! So I was diverted and had to go a different way; but managed to get to Kew just as the gates opened at 8am... and just as dark clouds were looming... never mind; we're British, we just carry on..
a favourite colour combination of the purple-blue with the dark yellow behind
I could feel spots of rain in the air now.. needed to find shelter...
I headed for the Hive where I knew at least I could stand under the glass bottomed layer...
another lady had the same idea and we chatted for a bit till it lessoned
the rain only lasted a few minutes though the sky was still quite dark
will go and check what it is next time!
love the reflections today
a group of babies (4 or 5) came marching past, right by my feet, not a care in the world,
I think these still have some way to go to their best..
checked that the trains were ok, headed for home..
3 and a bit hours...240 more photos.... and 6 miles walked, according to the pedometer I had found to take with me... (thanks to Josh at work) -
that seems an awful long way, not sure if it's accurate or not!
(edit... the pedometer thingy says 13280 steps.. so maybe it was 6 miles!)
