A visit to Kelsey Park

Today we took the tram down to Beckenham to visit Kelsey Park. This is a lovely public park with several interlinked lakes and a really good play area. The lakes are home to several types of ducks and geese as well as Swans and Herons.

A visit to Caterham

Today we visited Caterham on the Hill where we ate at the Fleetingbrook Pub.

Steam Train @ Bromley South

Today we headed down to Bromley South to see a beautiful steam train visit the station. It’s really something to see steam trains operating on mainline railways in London, especially during the working week. The formation did have a diesel tagged on the back just in case the steam engine broke down. We found out about the itenary from the UK Steam info website. Elias loved the steam and the noise of the train as it pulled away from the station.

A visit to Fishpond

This weekend we headed down to West Dorset on the train to visit family. This was Elias’s first long train journey; we set off from London Waterloo on Friday at 10:20 and arrived into Axminster at around 13:00. We spent the afternoon in Fishpond Bottom. On Saturday we spent the day with more family and on Sunday morning we headed down to Charmouth beach.

Due to engineering works, we returned to London on the first train of the day to go all the way to London. Everyone else also tried to catch this train so it was extremely busy.

A visit to Chatham Docks

Today I took Elias on his first visit to Chatham Docks. He loved wandering around the historic lifeboat collection and joining the tour of the Submarine “Ocelot”.  Tickets are valid for 12 months so we will hopefully arrange a few more visits over the coming months.

Shelter Building in South Norwood Country Park

Elias and I have been working on rebuilding this shelter in South Norwood Country Park – it’s in a lovely little clearing just off the main track in the Northern sector.
