I may have mentioned before (or not) that we live very near to the river Thames in Richmond. ¬†This is a constant source of enjoyment and pleasure to me and I try to plan a walk alongside or over the river at least once a day…if not more ūüôā

Walking over the bridge was the highlight of my journey to work in the mornings and the view of the river as the train whizzed across the railway bridge near Gunnersbury was a constant source of amazement…..the view is wonderful. ¬† The river holds a fascination for me that I have never experienced before and I get a lot of enjoyment from it. ¬†There is nothing more enjoyable than a stroll along the banks past the Old Deer Park with my daughter. ¬†In fact I would say that most of my happiest memories are tied up in those walks.

Sunsets from the top of the bridge are breathtaking and misty days no less so.  The changing of the seasons are easily visible along the banks and the view of the snow from the bridge painted a very pretty picture.  There are a number of houseboats tied up along the banks near Twickenham Bridge and these are a real pleasure to look at.

Despite the fact that the scene remains the same everyday….yet every day is different. ¬†Just little things like a new boat tied up, or swans sailing by, a police craft patrolling, geese landing, river cruisers going by, the tide out or the tide in, sunny days and rainy days all create an ever changing pattern. ¬†I am always surprised when people tell me they never noticed…….how could you not! ¬†Some days the river is completely empty (well almost) and other days it is filled to overflowing!

So here is a collage of photos to give you a glimpse of my very own version of heaven on earth.
