Lumpy Bumpy road to who knows where..!

Hello All you lovely walkers

Summer is doing a good job of hanging about, I’m recuperating from an op but I need to get out and about still.The turmor has been taken out of my neck/jaw ouch ( yes it still hurts & still healing) but I can still walk. My ear and side of the face are still numb and the wound is leaking particularly when I eat, something to do with the saliva glands. I have been struggling to maintain the need to take it easy & to get out and get some exercise and fresh air.  It has been good to catch up with what other people are doing on-line, other bloggers and in particular the 365 project (photography) and Pinterest I love. Also reading Blog inc by Joy Deangdeelert Cho and WordPress to go by Sarah Mcharry to broaden my knowledge of blogging.

A really good bunch of people.  We started at Bermondsey a linear 5 mile walk going through Southwark Park via Rotherhithe,  some of which is by the river onto The Thames Path,with fantastic views of London. Of course I didn’t have my camera, but I will go back.

Many “nooks an crannies” and historical reference points to the Docks; Russian Dock, Lavender Dock, good old Surrey Docks, to name a few. So many references and stories were told and someone had some old photos of the Docks from 1969 which was quite interesting. The leader Roger Aylward had an in-depth knowledge of the area and has lived in London 50 years and in Bermondsey the last 10 years. It was a large group and a really sunny day, so we meandered at a very slow pace stopping at frequent points for historical talks about the Docks &  just to admire the stunning city landscape.
