London: Sun, Woods, Museums & Curry

When one can walk amongst the oaks and beeches of an ancient forest in London, in record temperatures, on the first weekend in October, superlatives seem somehow inadequate.

Tim’s idea of a stroll through Queen’s and Highgate Woods was a great wandering way to enjoy the unexpectedly warm weekend sunshine.

The kids were exuberant and made me laugh. So did this dog.

It wasn’t all sunshine and vitamin D. We did spend some quality time indoors, at the Natural History Museum, which is obviously brilliant. Lucy and Sarah loved the ‘hands-on’ nature of the Investigation Room and talking with ‘the experts’.

Bailey suggested we have a curry at Aladin in Brick Lane and explore some markets in the East End. Superb Indian food and the vibe on the street made for a balmy evening in a place very unlike the October London I know. Managed to capture the mood a little with this shot below.

Many thanks to Tim and Bailey for their ongoing hospitality here in North London.

Cheers!
