The car journey is much longer, and we have to leave earlier to get parked near the school so the bike is preferable. On the other hand I do feel that I have to be sure that it won't rain. It's not much fun to be a wet and bedraggled five year old arriving for a day of learning at school!
My little girl's school is on the other side of the River (Thames) , and when we do cycle, the journey takes us over Teddington Lock.
As we are having an Indian summer we were able to cycle today, and I managed to take a few photos on my way home. Sadly, I do not have a very grand camera, but I do hope this will give you a little taste of our delightful journey!
|The bridge at Teddington Lock|
|I love the very Victorian industrial look of the bridge, |
which contrasts with the river
|Boats on a pontoon in the river|
|Can you see the Heron, sunning himself?|
|Here he is again, in profile|
|A spider's web|
|More contrast:-metal, water, trees and concrete|
|Where shall we go today?|
|Paths through Ham Lands|
|Our favourite mode of transport!|
