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.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
