Regent’s Park Wander

20150628_Regents_Park_Rose_Garden_0147 Making the most of the balmy summer nights towards the end of June, we found ourselves strolling around Regents Park.

I’m not a fan of the clichéd adage “tired of London, tired of life” to paraphrase the often quoted words. But sometimes there is no getting around it;  there really is always something new to discover in London. Regents Park is my favourite London Park, and I am saying that having picnicked, run, sun bathed, boot-camped and biked around quite a few others. Regents Park just makes me the most happy and so I spend a lot of time there and I feel like I know it pretty well. On this evening though, we happened to discover the rose garden for the first time. I always knew it was there but I didn’t know where and I had never taken the time to hunt it out before.

It was a good chance to practice our burgeoning photography skills too. I have to admit though, most of the photo credits go to Ben as Claire and I spent most of the time chatting. 20150628_Regents_Park_Rose_Garden_013520150628_Regents_Park_Rose_Garden_012020150628_Regents_Park_Rose_Garden_0154As I write Claire is just about to finish her 36 hour flight home and touch down in Wellington to eagerly awaiting family and friends. Its times like these I wish I could be there too, but I still have much more of London and Europe to discover yet.

  1. Regent’s Park is Claire’s favourite park too and one of the first park’s I ventured through, more thinking of the zoo. How can anyone not enjoy London – every day can be a wonder. In good ole Lower Hutt however, we are enjoying having Claire back but, it is something of a come down for her as the weather is cold and wet everyday with a little sunshine for maybe 1 hour and she is missing all the great food she enjoyed around Europe! Big signs of spring though – blossoms and magnolias flowering – our garden looking great too except for weeds I can’t get too!
