We walked the canal path until we got to Regents path - you go past the back of some very large residences on the opposite banks of the canal - maybe when we win the lottery.x
It was so lovely along the towpath - lots of joggers (nutters), cyclists (crazy people), and people like us who just wanted to be out enjoying the sun which is making a very welcome appearance finally.
|An attempt at taking a photo of us with my camera - I think we have halos.|
In the picture below you'll note a large heron trying to mug the pigeons (flying rats) for the bread that someone had fed them (despite signs stating not to do this).
By now we'd walked quite a long way so of course a drink was in order - creamy coolers for both of us, but Kenneth always ends up with a 'cold headache' - you know what I mean, when you're drinking or eating something really cold and pain shoots into your head. He says he doesn't mind as when it goes it's a pleasent relief - dad used to say exactly the same thing. I can't see the pleasure in that myself.

Selfridges also has great window displays and today it's all about Louis Vuitton - polka dots and old lady.
Another great thing that you see around London at the moment are the Olympic mascots, Wenlock (named after Much Wenlock in Shropshire where the inspiration for the oympics came from) & Mandeville (named after Stoke Mandeville which saw the birth of the Paralymipics). They're all painted in different styles and you find them in the most unusual places. (I know they're weird looking, but this was the only one that we found that didn't have tourists queueing to have their pictures taken with it).
Distance walked - 6 miles
Lovely sunset to finish the day. Stay safe & keep smiling.
