How Can A Rest Day Include 12k Walking?

Richard is effing crazy.

Finding himself a little exhausted from our adventures he decided that Sunday would be a rest day, with the plan being to sit in Starbucks and play his stupid computer game.

Wonderful in theory, and to be fair he spent 2 hours doing so, and then decided to walk around Hyde Park and the Serpentine lake, via Marble Arch.

Marble Arch with the golden arches over my left shoulder. I’m loving it. The rhino is part of a series of installations by Tusk to “Raise public awareness of the plight of the rhino, our conservation work and to raise vital public funds to support our projects.”

That’s my seriousness over, although I had to be for the last paragraph, important stuff.

Onwards to Hyde Park and some exercise. Would you really? In public? I would but there’s no way that Richard will join in.

Some pretty good birds on the Serpentine, but my favourites were flying around all over the place. London has a whole load of ring-necked parakeets. They started off with a small flock, probably in the 1950’s or 69’s, but nobody knows for sure. They’re all over London now and have started to travel further a field. I didn’t get my photo taken with them.

Different adventures await today, I’ll post about it tomorrow. Whatever you do today remember that action man loves ya all.

  1. I loves you too Action Man, and Richard for sharing all of your adventures. I feel like I have learned a lot more about London, somewhere I might not ever be able to visit, so thank you both. I only wonder who Action Man called at the phone booth? And I hope you were you able to at least get a beer and cig break before Richards Starbuck and gaming rest:)
