Walking the Regent's Canal

I went out with DS and a good friend today for a rescheduled walk from Camden Lock to Paddington via Little Venice along the Regent's Canal. The day was gloriously warm and sunny and the walk was as lovely as I had hoped. We saw exotic birds as we walked past the zoo, admired the house boats with all their little adornments, gardens and sun traps, we saw ducks and moorhens and a good sprinkling of very nice houses.

We followed this up with lunch in Sheldon Square - duck with salad and lentils - yum! and a wander down to Paddington - as you come under the West Way the whole landscape changes and you feel as if you have changed cities - that's the wonder of London - things change so quickly from district to district.

We ended up on South Molton street having a delicious ice cream, and I found a gorgeous material and trimmings shop called macculloch-wallis which I will have to revisit soon. I did manage a little purchase of trimmings though!
