A day out – Box Hill, Surrey

Leave a comment

Being more or less housebound with my broken foot, I love every opportunity that I get to get out. My friend took me out to Box Hill in Surrey. Despite me having lived close by in the past I have never actually been there, but I heard the views over the North Downs are beautiful. So off we went. I was crossing my fingers for a car park close to the viewing area as walking longer distances is not an option on 2 crutches. And we were rewarded with a car park and about a 100 meter walk to get the views. Perfect:

To our right was a beautiful view over Dorking which its picturesque church right in the middle of the town:

We didn’t have quite the great weather as it was promised to us, but nonetheless we got decent views and they had coffee up there in the visitor center also. What else does one need?

And so you can see I am still a happy non-runner. Yes, I did spent quite some time cleaning my crutches and boot afterwards, but it was well worth it!
