Pictorial of Inchcock’s hobble to the Tropical Gardens

I decided to take this marathon walk, because I was in low spirits, although I knew it had to happen, because Caroline and Sonia, the Stroke Aftercare gals, had just paid their last visitation – I will never see them again! Depression is to blame for the absolute agony and discomfort that I put myself through today.

It was as if I was stubbing my toe and bad feet on purpose? It’s very sad, innit? Tsk!

Setting out, the Turf Accountants at work! Hehehe!

3Wed01c

Mapperley Plains for some shopping, pod peas, eggs, and cobs, etc. Luckily the vehicular traffic failed to knock me over, run into me, or injure me at all!

3Wed01f

A struggle down Woodthorpe Drive to the Tropical Gardens

3Wed01g

Struggled down the road, I kept within the speed limit with the trolley!

3Wed01h

Through Woodthorpe Grange Park car park

3Wed01J

A lovely hobble to the Tropical gardens – but stubbed toe on the trolley wheel!

3Wed01K

Through the gates, and another toe-stubbing on uneven ground!

3Wed01L

Walk around then into the Tropical Gardens.

3Wed01m

View on entry to the gardens, glasses and camera steamed-up!

3Wed01N

Not much floral about today, sparse and a lot of plants had been removed.

3Wed01O

The carp and goldfish pond, I had a chat with them – no one else in there!

3Wed01p

Made my way back out to the doors.

3Wed01Q

Back out, in the garden centre.

3Wed01R

Noticed this sign about the automatic doors – or are they automatic? Hehe!

3Wed01T

I took a different route back to the flats – another toe stubbing! Tsk!

3Wed03

Ah! I found the way into the park. Humph!

3Wed05

Through the mud to the footpath.

3Wed04

Spotted a crow, and did my failed best to take a decent shot.

3Wed05a1

Not a lot of folks around.

3Wed06

Stopped for a rest and look around. Oh, the poor old toe and feet were Stinging!

3Wed07

At last, the wee-weeing hole and pain-killers came into sight.

3Wed09

Stopped halfway down the gravel-path hill for a photo.

3Wed08

The path had been relaid again and was much easier to use.

3Wed10

At last, I was nearing a warm bowl of medicated hot water and pain-killers, to help ease the agony of the poor old feet and the well-stubbed already stubbed toe! Ahh!

  1. Whoa! You were going 29 with your three wheel trolly? That’s makes sense for covering so much ground by your map. Great pictorial of you trip through the tropical forest.
