So I've had a few days off work which was very nice but what to do. Wednesday evening I didn't have a clue so checked out Time Out and hurrah, not one but two things to see over in Dulwich.
I'm trying to be healthy at the moment and dare I say it trying to loose weight so I was up bright and early and enjoyed an early morning stroll through a gloriously sunny Brockwell Park over to Herne Hill.
I was then walking through residential streets over to the Dulwich Picture Gallery and stumbled across the entrance to the Herne Hill Velodrome - made more famous by the inspiring Bradley Wiggins. Now I'm not one for sport but OH has really got me into the Tour de France for the past three years and love both Bradley and the wonderful Mark Cavendish so it was great to see where it all started for one of them. .
The same street had these amazing Holly Hocks (I think though let me know if I'm wrong). I love walking through streets that have well maintained gardens. Just lovely especially in late August. I then got a phone call from my very clever niece who had managed to get mainly A's in her GCSEs - was so proud!!!
This is Summer
And here is a view of all four. As they're in the grounds they are also free and I can't recommend them enough. They really made me smile and the blue skies certainly helped.
