Out and about in London

 sometimes we just want to get out and about

I am greatly encouraged to get out and about walking around London recently. The spring and good weather help. My first walk/ bike ride, was from Brixton to the South Bank on what promised to be an extremely polluted day! I

It was very warm and a grey mist hung over London. Firstly I cycled round the back streets and got to Waterloo for 11am. I know the route pretty well, so I know where to tie the bike around Waterloo.

I sat down inside the South Bank Centre, with my Mac Air book, intending to do some work.!, but I gave up on that, due to the festival hall hosting some kids dance /music event. I then walked over to Covent Garden to get myself a t-shirt, walked back & picked up my bike, then cycled back to Brixton.

 

Walking around and in Blackheath/ Greenwich

Another day out and about in London, where we walked down to Greenwich Market from Blackheath, where I picked up some great illustrated cards from THE DM Collection wwww.thedmcollection.com and had some lunch.

Having walked about Greenwich, we decided to take the clipper to the Embankment; as it was such a lovely day we, decided not to take a bus back and & walked back to Brixton.

The day after I joined up with the Finchley walking group from Highgate to Angel which was about 6 miles.

 

Additionally Last Sunday I walked with the South Bank Walking Group on a 11 mile walk in the Guildford area.  May looks to be a promising month, I’m working as a poll clerk in the General Election then going to Berlin the day after. There is a choice of Walks and a couple of Bank Holidays and many events happening, so I am going to be spoilt for choice.

 

This blog is dedicated to Karen & thanks for the free drinks at The New Order exhibition at The Proud Gallery Camden.

As promised I aim to get a blog out by the end of the month.

Until next time see you then
