Primrose Hill to Camden Lock

We’ve had some lovely weather this week, so I’ve been out and about in London with my camera – yesterday I walked up through Regents Park to Primrose Hill, then along the towpath of Regents Canal to Camden Lock. London is pretty flat on the whole, with hills very few and far between, so the few reasonable gradients that do exist tend to be used by everyone as natural viewpoints across the city.

Although neither Regents Park nor Camden Lock were particularly quiet on such a warm and sunny summer’s afternoon, I had a really peaceful and relaxing walk, enjoying an impromptu picnic lunch on the top of Primrose Hill, and a refreshingly chilled still lemonade on the canal side at Camden, just sitting and watching the world go by… 🙂

Brighton beach…

DeckchairsIn this hot stuffy weather I’d really love to go for a day-trip to Brighton, sit on a traditional stripy deckchair on the beach, and just watch in peace as the world passes me by…
