We went by Overland train to Hampstead Heath yesterday. It is lovely travelling by train above ground. The Underground is a great asset for London and is one of its attractions but travelling Overground seems more civilised. We were amazed at how many people there were walking and milling around. The view from the hill was thrilling, London before me, at my feet.
We then called in at Keats house where I bought a badge with the legend “poet” just in case no one has noticed and then went to lunch at Polly’s Café.
I had a vegetable pie and Valerie a bacon and avocado sandwich; both were lovely. On the way to Hackney Central I looked for a sight of another London Skyline with my camera set with shutter priority at 2000th of a second.
I like taking picture from and of trains and am planning a blog of the journey from Enfield to Liverpool Street Station. From Hackney Central we walked the walkway to Hackney Downs and whilst waiting for our train I took these pictures of trains against the backdrop of the Mossbourne Academy which is painted a beautiful Delphinium Blue
