16th Aug 1945: Polar bear seen by restoration man

16 Thur. Very mild, dull morning, nice sunny afternoon but a very stiff fresh breeze. In afternoon cycled to Oxshott Heath via Worcester Park, Old Malden, Ruxley, Chessington, where I saw a polar bear in the zoo, it could be seen from the road. I had not been to Oxshott for a great many years but it all came back to me. I sat in the sun on the ridge overlooking the heath and station and brought back a sprig of heath and heather: quite an enjoyable outing. Re-painted the Roman figures on Mrs. Jordan’s clock; it looks very nice now it has been cleaned and varnished.
