Regent’s Canal Walk, Part 2

After enjoying our first canal walk a couple of weeks ago, we embarked on a new one yesterday, starting from Camden Road station and following the towpath from Camden Lock Market. We used the Jubilee Greenway route guide from Transport for London (Section 3) as our reference, which takes you through Camden, King’s Cross, Barnsbury, Islington, Hackney and Bethnal Green.

Regent’s Canal Walk, Part 1

Gosh, it has been absolutely ages since I have written a post on here! I have no excuses, just life! Anyhow, this post is about a trip on Saturday we did to a part of London we had never been to before. The Regent’s Canal Walk, as part of the Jubilee Greenway, takes you through Little Venice, past Regent’s Park and London Zoo, finishing at Camden Town.

Unfortunately, we didn’t quite complete this walk, because one of my sandals started to fall apart as we were going past Regent’s Park, so we did a detour that involved meandering around Primrose Hill, before getting to Chalk Farm tube station to go home.

A Little Sketchbook of Fruit

Over the last couple of months, I have been doing little watercolour and pen sketches in various sketchbooks based around different themes. They really help me to start my day as I tend to do them in the morning. My go to watercolours is the “Sakura Koi Watercolors Pocket Field Sketch Box” and my favourite pens (at the moment, because I’m a fickle little bunny) are Sakura Pigma Microns (and no, I’m not affiliated to Sakura in any way).

GoGo Dragons in Norwich

A few weeks ago, we went to Norwich for the day to find some dragons…GoGo Dragons, to be exact…there are 84 of these art sculptures across the city. Obviously, we weren’t able to see all of them, but we managed a good number…38!
