A rainy morning in East London
No, it doesn’t always rain in England. But this June, on my last trip there, we had five days of leaden skies and almost constant wetness. It was around the queens crown jubilee, you might remember the pictures of the drenched boat parade on the Thames.
One morning when it wasn’t pouring down for a change we took a walk to Victoria Park. We had breakfast at the Pavilion, a very cute little Cafe by the lake. It’s beautiful when the sun is shining and you can sit outside, but the gray and cool day outside made it even more cosy. The eggs Benedict are to die for!
After breakfast, we took a walk around the park and up to the canal. Around the year there are people living in houseboats on the water. Though I admit is has a romantic charm, I imagine it gets quite chilly in winter
