Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Inner city farm

 This is Surrey Docks farm which is next to the Thames Path. It is close to a large residential area and gives inner city children the opportunity to meet farm animals.







These photos were taken on Day 2 of my Thames Path walk. The writing up of the walk is taking me quite a long time and am finding it difficult to post on both my sites at the moment but now that the tennis at Wimbledon has finished. (Yes Murray won. Yes! Yes! Yes!) I will try and be a bit more speedy.

  1. Oh come on I play around with five but it does get on top of you I admit. I probably don't give farms a second thought as I see them every day but in a city it must be a novelty. Keep up the blogging.

  2. Looks like a great place especially for kids to visit. Kids love to see farm animals... Glad your person won at Wimbledon. I used to watch Wimbledon years ago --but haven't watched it the past several years..

    Hugs,

  6. It's a brilliant idea for urban kids who probably don't have any idea where a bacon sandwich originates from (other than a greasy spoon cafe!)

  7. It's very important for city kids ! I always remember the daughter of a friend who stayed a week with us and she thought that steaks grow on a tree !!

  8. Urban farms are increasingly popular in the U.S., too. When I take the train into the city, I see some lovely ones, often amidst derelict buildings and other urban blight. A good use for abandoned land, I think.

  9. That's a great idea. I live in the far suburbs/countryside so I see these types of things every day.

  11. I always enjoyed visiting my relatives farms when I was a kid in Idaho and South Dakota. I was also glad that my immediate family were not farmers. Too much work.
