We managed a few outings over the weekend. Everything came slowly and at our own pace...a perfect weekend. Our only mishap was the attempt to get up to Box Hill. It seemed that every child in a 100 mile radius was attending the annual Easter Egg Hunt. No matter...it is close at hand and we will try again another day.
We popped into Banstead Common to give Tika a run around. It was a quiet spot with vistas as far as the eye could see. Thru the woods and peering into a family garden. It was a nice way to end the day.
Today was closer to home with a trip to Claremont Landscape Garden, a National Trust property. This spot is rich in garden history. 'In 1726 it was described as the noblest of any in Europe'. Much has changed since then but you can still glimpse a few areas of the garden that were magnificent features of the time, an island and pavilion, grotto, camellia terrace and more. Today we felt that we had it to ourselves, a welcome sight after our experience at Box Hill.
One long weekend down, another one to go in a few more days.
Happy days in Surrey :)
Best wishes to one and all for a wonderful week!
