Continuing the route taken a few weeks ago, I kayaked from Park Royal to Little Venice today, as the conditions were good. I’ve cycled along this route every week over the last year, so it was nice to see everything at a slower pace. And I was rewarded with a Kingfisher sighting near Kensal Rise Cemetery. Just a blue flash, but I’ll take that as a definite! The canal does appear to be cleaner along this stretch, so there is obviously enough food to support it.
Beautiful morning for a paddle. Ice on the boats, but worth the cold fingers!

Rev Richard Coles, presenter on BBC Radio Four’s Saturday Live, once described the plastic bags suspended along the roadside on his drive home as looking like “Unfortunate wraiths snagged in trees”. Sadly a common feature along the River Thames. More ‘wildling’ trees along the Thames footpath near Mortlake. A ‘wildling’ Plane tree growing out of the cobbled embankment along the River Thames between Chiswick and Kew.
The corner of my mum’s plant hospital. Apparently I won the large cactus in the middle at a school summer fair when I was about 8 years old. It was ‘confiscated’ as I didn’t look after it. Monstera deliciosa or cheese plant. London Plane tree – high tide, overlooking Vauxhall Bridge.
