On Sunday 27 November 2011 Roger and Virginia

Yelland led a happy band of ramblers on a walk in

the Lea Valley.  Sheila Bravin let me have 86 photographs

she took on the walk, complete with captions for most of

them.  Scroll down to view them.

Roger and Virginia met the ramblers at Liverpool Station

to escort them to the beginning of the walk.

By train and Bus but the ramblers persevered to Cheshunt

A cold rain descended on the stalwart group but on they went

A playground for very well trained dogs

English autumnal woodland path

 And a blustery autumn wind

A hazy sunshine brightens the path

Excellent facilities for man's best friend

Wrapped up for the rain

Stunning scenery

Twitching!! Wildlife watching station

The sky brightens to show the lake at its best

Be prepared ramblers brought binoculars

Stunning scenery abounds

Forest path

Enjoying the November ramble

Blazing sunshine for November

The photographer with iphone camera

Autumn greenery

Heading towards the lunch stop at a good pace

Rays of sun lighten up the morning

Everyone enjoying their own pace and space

Signs of winter too

Windfall apples of all stages of ripeness

Irresistable!! - stewed apple tonight

Pointing the way to lunch at Broxbourne

Deep in pleasant thoughts

Autumn colours

Lockkeeper's house

The River Lee (the name changes from Lee to Lea intermittently along its 27 mile course)

Every turning presents fresh interest

Apparently the gravel pits were flooded to create this nature reserve

Shadows of our photographer

The forest path meanders on

Jackets open as the day and walk warm up

Winter persists in coming through

The seasons are as mixed as the foliage

A wonderful ramble continues

No getting lost!!!

Fishing by licence

No captions for the next ten photographs

Weir

And seven more captionless photographs

The scenery ever changing

Hippies!!

The welcome lunch stop looms into view

And Roger being unaccustomed to letting grass grow under his feet, got the ramblers

to the lunch stop ten minutes before opening time!!

A reminder of the Friday Abstinance reintroduced in the Catholic Church in

England and Wales in September 2011

View from the pub garden

Superdelicious food!!

Carrot and Nut Roast for our photographer

The camera then appears to have been rested for the afternoon part of the walk.
