We left Paddington early and turned up the Regent's Canal through St. John's wood
with it's huge canal-side mansions
and the Zoo, however the only part of the zoo visible from the canal was an aviary
This is the Feng Shang Princess floating restaurant beside Cumberland Basin in Primrose Hill
The trip into Camden was almost as weird and wacky as Camden itself, what with water skiing beef eaters
and cows on balconies
not to mention pirates
It was still early when we arrived at Camden Lock and there were hardly any gongoozlers about. It was a totally different scene on the way back though with people surrounding all the locks.
This signpost beside the lock shows our next major destination, we're booked into Liverpool in October.
This moorhen had made her nest right beside St Pancras Lock. She must have been sitting on eggs as nothing would shift her, not even when a day boat full of screaming kids stood right beside her pointing and trying to prod her
We moored up at King's Cross for lunch before turning round and retracing our steps back to Paddington for the night. We're finally leaving London tomorrow and much as I've enjoyed the city, it'll be nice to get back into the countryside again soon.
Bye for now
