London Hood: Regent's Park - Avenue Gardens and some of the Broadwalk.


This is mostly filled with pictures more than anything, but not enough to do the park justice. 

Regent's Park is one of the parks, I visit once in a while. There was a time when I used to walk there on early Saturday mornings. It's huge and I have a feeling most users tend to keep to one area of the park. I haven't really got much to say other it's a very nice park, with lots of open spaces. 

There tends to be lots of activities in the summer with an open air theatre, summer food fair, charity races and other events. At times they even had exhibitions or installations around the park.  

I tend to stick to Avenue Gardens which is south if I have my bearings right, I rarely go beyond that bit. However there is also a boating lake and shamefully, I've probably only been to Queen Mary's garden a couple of times but again it depends on your preference/area.

However you can walk towards the London Zoo, though it is probably nearer another entrance. And its very active on Saturdays where hoards of kids practice for football matches or league. It's nuts. When I was younger - like teen and early twenties, I used to attend a lot of summer picnics in this park, especially Avenue Gardens park.


Behind the bushes...I thought of having my characters sneak behind a bush and you know...I'm not so sure given it's cold but probably in summer. So maybe this park will feature in the next one...

This was a blackbird in the Boardwalk.

This is from the broadwalk where most people walk their dogs. The tall tower is the BT tower, another London landmark.
Some ducks looking beyond. At what, I have no idea.


I thought I'd take a picture of my walking shoes. To honest, if I didn't have these, I probably wouldn't have featured the park. 

I feel rather sheepish, I don't set any of my stories in London, it has beautiful locations, then again my fictional USA city is based on London in a way....And some novels are partly set here....such as the one I'm currently stuck on.




It's worth a visit, and there is so much to see, you can even walk to Primrose Hill where you'd probably catch a celeb or two since that's where some of trendy ones live.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
