Its been ages, but it’s good to be back blogging.
I spent a great evening with a good friend of mine last night in Hayes, West London. Hayes is a bit of an interesting place, historically not the nicest place (sorry!) but with the cross rail coming in future years parts are being gratefully redeveloped. It also has a very nice little secret in that the capital ring passes by via the Grand Union canal. An unused waterway (short of a few river boats – all moored) which takes you uninterrupted all the way to the city of London. And what a secret it is – ok I did leave the house very early to make it to work for 8:30 but it was 2 hours in before I saw my first person, also jogging along the tow path.
Here are my photos from my iPhone6 as I ran along, it’s a really capable camera. Sorry to say the battery gave in 4 miles from the city so I don’t have the high rises, maybe I’ll add them in later. But here’s what 24 miles of canal look like… Good and bad
