Up the river and round the lake!

Back to “long walk Sunday” today with another wander along the river from Harlow to Roydon, then up to Glen Faba, part of the Lee Valley Park. We went there for the first time a few weeks ago but only walked round part of it that time so decided to go back to explore more thoroughly.

Both MrEH and I did fitness stuff yesterday, plus I did a 5 mile walk yesterday morning, and as a result the legs were a bit sore and stiff before we started today, it was also the first time in a few weeks we’d walked that far, but the walk around the lake was so beautiful we were completely distracted from our aching legs. We had no idea where the paths went, but basically kept the water on our left and only once found ourselves following a path that turned out to be a dead end.

A really lovely walk and a location that we will almost certainly return to again - a lot of the paths would work well for winter walking too. Plenty of bird-life to be seen although nothing that unusual on this occasion - I suspect the spring and autumn might see more variety though. 

And that is another weekend done and dusted. I’m planning another aviation photography trip for the week to come, and also want to get some more older photos sorted out too, so hopefully will manage to make decent use of my time.
