I had to go up to the hospital briefly again so decided to walk through Regent's Park up to Primrose Hill and along the bit of Regent's canal that I have not walked before.
I have been meaning to go to Primrose Hill for years so finally got there. The views are amazing and there is a plaque naming the views.
Some sights in Regent's Park - the usual beautiful fountains and flower beds plus lots of strange sculptures.
A man exercising his pet parrot - allowing it to fly free around the bottom of the hill. My son was not at all surprised when I told him as he said unusual sights are usual there. Apparently the Beatles song "The Fool on the Hill" refers to Primrose Hill. I didn't know that.
When I had my fill of the view I went down to the Regent's canal which has the famous Zoo either side for a while. 44 years ago when our son was a baby, we did go by boat from Camden to the Zoo along the canal but I have never walked this bit.
Lord Snowdon's aviary which according to a notice is empty but going to be refurbished for a monkey house.
Some of the big houses next to the canal and a marina.
I came off the canal then and walked past a big social housing estate back to Regent's park and to the tube and home. I always think of that area as full of wealthy people but then when you see the other side of the park and ordinary people you realize that its the same as anywhere. A mixture of all sorts.
