Weekday Walks

Little Venice on a beautiful September day.
The ladies who walk.
From left: S is from Australia, O is newly arrived from Norway and doesn't have horns in real life (not sure of her home country), Y is from Holland, as is P.
Such is life in cosmopolitan London. 
 The Grand Union canal; the busiest canal in the UK
 Floating cafe and permanent floating homes on the Regent's Canal.
The home of Little Venice's newest resident: Robbie Williams.  He paid £27 million sterling. 
I really enjoyed the guided tour today.  The guide was both knowledgeable and witty. Two hours passed very quickly and we still had time for a pub lunch (which I forgot to photograph).
Next up, the Inns of Court.

Beautiful scenery Ruth. I love the idea of a floating home.

I never think of you having canal boats in your part of the world. What a lovely walk that would be

At first I thought the 27M sterling was for the houseboat and gawped at the picture. Then I realised it was just a birthday bimbo moment and it was the next picture that was really that much

I'd love a house boat but your BIL won't let me have one!!!

Looks like a good outing. Was it an organised tour or did one of the ladies know all about the area?

Ooh I used to love little Venice, so many of the boat owners are really friendly and chatty unlike so many other town dwellers!
