Travel Photo of the Day (April 19)

A couple of weekends ago I was feel antsy and had to get out and stretch my legs.  I ended up walking to Holland Park, one of my favorite places in London.  The day was cloudy and rain threatened.  But that didn’t deter me.  And thank goodness since my stroll was lovely. Here is one of the photos from the Japanese garden.

  1. The other day, I felt the same way and wondered to a bench underneath one of Florida’s palm tress and made out pictures from the clouds. This place looks idyllic 🙂

    How green! I have not been there for ages. Does Richard Branson still live close by?

      That I don’t know…there are a lot of nice houses in the area but I haven’t looked into who lives where. Would his house have a blue plaque?

  3. I can see why that’s one of your favorite places in London!

    Beautiful photo – I like the reflection in the water. I have been having the same feeling – a need to get out of the house, but not sure where I want to go. I will use your walk as inspiration.

    Beautiful! So peaceful. I thought it had the feel of a Japanese garden, and then your description confirmed it. I just love how well manicured and taken care of they are.
