Day 68 #100HappyDays: Rick Pond

May 18th, 2014, 12pm

A glorious sunny and hot day today. I went on a three mile walk with my sister exploring our local area along the river: first into Kingston, across the bridge, and to Hampton Court. We took a detour to Rick Pond and came across the Hampton Court Model Yacht Club in full swing with a race. It was a funny sight to behold. A nice bunch of friendly gentlemen but very serious in their race.

Just Googled it and this has been the venue for model yacht racing since 1890!

Adrian, Christine and Paul said thanks.
