After a lazy morning waiting for our new shower (which happens to be worse than the previous one) to be installed we popped over to Primrose Hill for a coffee fix & took a stroll down the lovely (green) Regent's Canal to the Floating Market & onwards to Hyde Park. We had originally intended on heading to Notting Hill Carnival but by the time we dragged ourselves out of Hyde Park & got there we found ourselves in a sea of drunken revellers which proved far too much for our sober selves.
|It's amazing to watch the poor ducks struggling through this sludge...|
|Cafe's, hairdressing salons & bookstores were among the 'stalls'|
|The Floating Market was a bit disappointing but a novelty all the same. It seemed a bit too personal getting onto the boats to browse so we contented ourselves with some windowless shopping on the canal bank.|
