Located in the middle of London’s historic Hyde Park, Serpentine Lake is one of the city’s most beloved spots.

This man-made water body was created in 1730 to provide a spot for activities such as boating and fishing, and it has since become a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.

The lake stretches over 40 acres and is surrounded by a beautiful landscape of trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. It’s also home to a wide variety of wildlife, from wildfowl and fish to reptiles and amphibians. The lake is regularly stocked with brown trout, making it a great spot for fishing.

Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain

    

Diana, Princess of Wales was a beloved and iconic figure in the 20th century.

After her death in 1997, her memory was commemorated with several memorials around the world, including the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain in London.

The memorial was designed by Kathryn Gustafson and opened in July 2004.

It is located in Hyde Park and is built in the shape of an oval stone ring, with two sides separated by a shallow pool of water.

The water flows in two directions, representing the “ever-changing flow of life”.

The memorial is made of Dartmoor granite

and Portland stone and it is said to symbolise Diana’s connection with her two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, and her bond with the public.

The fountain is surrounded by a large area of open space, which is often used for relaxation and picnics.

The memorial has become a popular tourist attraction and is often featured in film and photography.

It is also a popular spot for wedding photos.

 

The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain is a beautiful and meaningful tribute to a much-loved figure.

It serves as a reminder of how Diana’s compassion and charity touched so many people’s lives, and how her memory continues to inspire and bring people together.

Park visitors picking up fallen chestnuts. 

These are lovely when roasted. 

Be careful that you’re not picking horse chestnuts though,  we’ve picked a handful in Sussex before thinking all chestnuts are the same but my word, those things are a killer; please verify this for me.  

Good thing they tasted awful,  otherwise could have eaten loads then died in the end. 

That could have been a disaster haha!! 

We’re guessing these geese are also enjoying the abundance of chestnuts, 

good for them. 

We love seeing happy people and happy animals. 

Good for the soul! 

They remind us of a scene from Disney’s Little Mermaid  when the prince and Ariel (the little mermaid) were boating. 

Maybe the creator took some inspiration from Hyde Park lol…

Wow, you seem to be in deep thoughts. 

Carry on your meditation. I feel you. Bless your heart.     

Look how graceful these beauties are. 

They remind us of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lakenot that we know the lyrics nor the meaning of the composition, the title just popped into mind lol.  

This basin/ pool spillover from the lake doubles up as a wishing well 

and people throw in some shiny pennies as tokens for their wishes. 

Some don’t really even know what they want in life, 

so their wish is hopefully to finally find out what they want in life. 

You would need more than a few shiny pennies for that problem lol. 

You need some serious soul-searching. 

Life is a limited and time-sensitive ASSET. 

You’ve got to make the most of what you’ve got because 

you really won’t know when it will be taken away from you do you?
