Thanks for visiting.
Just past Paddington Station on the Grand Union Canal is Sheldon Square part of the Paddington Central development which will extend to Marble Arch. Sheldon Square itself has an amphitheatre for live entertainment surrounded by offices, apartments and restaurants.
Did someone say restaurant? Let's pop into Beany Green's for a cup of camomile tea, resisting brunch as we've got walking to do.
Refreshed, we're mooching by the canal, admiring the canal boats and flowers on the way to Little Venice, said to be named by the poet Robert Browning.
You can see from the map, that Little Venice is a triangular area of water where the Grand Union and Regent's Canals meet. Such a pleasant spot.
You can take a boat trip or even go on a gondola, just like in the real Venice in Italy.
Having crossed over the canal on the blue bridge in the fourth photo, we're now walking along the Regent's Canal in the direction of Camden.
You'll have to cross the road when the canal disappears in a tunnel, but it's easy to find it again and it's a particularly beautiful stretch through Maida Vale.
It's obviously a sought after spot to live as there are a number of blue plaques on the houses, including Arthur Lowe of Dad's Army fame and Guy Gibson, the Bomber Command leader of the Dambusters Raid.
I'll leave you to have a look around before the next bit.
