Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Camden

Camden in North London is well known for its market at the lock on Regent's Canal but the high Street also has some interesting shop fronts.







 After walking along the high street I then crossed the bridge into Camden Lock Market. This cafe had very interesting seats - all made from old Vesta scooters.

  1. What amazing shop fron art, well worth the walk along the street to look at. What a way to treat a scooter but as they are Vespas a won't say anything.
