Late Saturday post

We hopped on a river boat and travelled up the river to Hampton Court Palace.  We were the only people on the boat so we had a one to one talk from the Captain's hand.

This is where Bradley Wiggins won the cycling time trial last week.  Lovely grounds and buildings.  The gates are covered in gold leaf.

We walked around the grounds and came upon a small display of old bicycles.  There were several bicycles which were replicas like the Bone Shaker and the Penny Farthing.  The green Penny Farthing was an original at over 100 years old.  They even gave a demonstration on how to ride a it.

How beautiful. You are a really great photographer. You capture your subjects so well.
