Today we were invited to Chris’ parents flat in London to see their new kitchen and bathroom. It was also an opportunity to see Chris’ Dad who has been quite poorly of late. As usual when we visit them we stopped off at Virginia Water Lake which is part of the Royal Parks around Windsor. We only stay for an hour as parking is exorbitant, but the dogs love it. Today it was cold, sunny and packed with people and dogs.
Both dogs started out by having a dip in the lake. Here’s Jez…
… and here’s Max being joined by a little terrier as Chris throws his cone.
We walked along the main path towards the Duck Pond in the crowds of people, but then turned off into the trees.
It was lovely through here.
A little bit further on and the track opened out.
At this point we veered left to loop back around to the Duck Pond. En route Chris stopped to give the dogs a treat.
We walked on to the Duck pond…
… where I liked the reflection of the trees in their Autumn shades in the water.
And then we headed back along the main path until we cut back through the trees towards the car park.
It had been a lovely walk as the woods were stunning. And we had a lovely visit with Chris’ family after that. Sadly the journey home out of central London wasn’t so good, especially as there was a large firework display just off Ladbroke Grove and we got stuck in a traffic jam on Holland Park Avenue.

A very high tide had caused the stream to flood at Upton Country park.
