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

HAPPY NEW YEAR - LET THE GOALS ROLL

Hello all. Happy New Year! So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay. Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment. I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assist

Up Date on Happenings: Newly Single & 17% pay raise.

Hey Everyone, So update since my last entry. Well I had a brief fling with Mr Sexy Guy and decided he wasn't the one for me. He was cool but I learned the difference between lust, chemistry and personality. It just didn't tango for me. I'm still grossly overweight, well, fat. I don't think there is anything wrong with being called fat. I am fat. I need to lose weight but that means getting organised and stop eating delicious food. Then again my knees are hurting me and joints feel the ache. I also haven't been to the gym in three months despite paying for it. But when I do, I normally go for the sauna, hot tub and   steam room session. I've thought of cancelling the exorbitant membership but in the climate apart from bills it's the one thing that is just for me...that when I use it. Work is fine, managed to get a 17% pay raise. A big thanks to my boss who also pushed for it. It's good to work for people who support you in that matter. I think tha
