Lee Valley Park

While I was staying with Liz and Keith we went took a trip to Lee Valley Park.  I had never been there before and was surprised how large it was and also the amount of wildlife there was around.    First we went to Dobbs Weir.

And then we went further into the park and came across a number of ducks and swans. 
Later we went to Van Hages garden centre and saw the miniature railway and carousel.  They also have loads of smaller animals and winter ice rink, it was very popular place.

  1. Nice photos - had a look at Flickr. The ones with movement are quite clever. I need to learn how to do that.

  2. Nice images. What's that with a very long neck and wide opened mouth.
