Towpath Cafe

I was first introduced to the Towpath Cafe along Regent’s Canal earlier this summer while on a bike/photo walk with some other photographer friends and wanted to go back again immediately. Luckily I was able to convince another friend to join me for a sunny, summery lunch at this cute spot a few weeks later. That day we chowed down on a chicken caesar salad and another salad of grilled courgettes, beef tomatoes and pesto all washed down with a lovely glass of rosé. The food was delicious and we were entertained by the steady stream of bikers/walkers/runners filing past- it makes for great people watching. We were also visited by the tiniest four legged furry friend (see last photo) who was quite the poser for the camera. Before we left we made sure to grab two cones of refreshing mint ice cream which we had to consume pretty quickly before it was sacrificed to the heat.

If you have the time before the weather turns cold, I would highly recommend stopping by for breakfast, lunch or simply a cup of coffee. And if you see that tiny little pup, be sure to give him a little pat hello!

Regent’s Canal: Spring

canal_spring_01

One of my favorite semi-hidden gems in London is the Regent’s Canal that stretches from Little Venice across North London to the Limehouse Basin. On any given day you will see people taking a stroll, going for a run, biking or boating along the canal. And depending where you are, there is usually a nice spot to peel off from the path and explore London. Since we live so close, I am documenting the way it changes through the seasons. These shots are from springtime on the canal a little further west of the winter images. This part of the canal runs along Regent’s Park and the London Zoo and looks onto the backs of some beautiful houses.

One of my favorite semi-hidden gems in London is the Regent’s Canal that stretches from Little Venice across North London to the Limehouse Basin.

And depending where you are, there is usually a nice spot to peel off from the path and explore London. Since we live so close, I am documenting the way it changes through the seasons starting with the canal during winter time. These shots are along the path that goes from Regent’s Park up to the Camden Lock. A few of my favroite spots (like Melrose & MorganThe EngineerThe Corner One) are just off of the canal and are great places to grab a bite or a coffee.
