Walk Report

London Great Parks, Wednesday 3rd June 2009
17 walkers, 10 miles - leader Nicole Carbonara
Sixteen happy walkers left High Street Kensington station in fresh weather and the seventeenth one joined the group at Marble Arch. We crossed Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park, Regent's Park and gathered at the top of Primrose Hill to admire the views on London of which we never tire, and there we posed for the website photographs. We were lucky to arrive in St James Park for the Trooping the Colour rehearsal and, after crossing Green Park, we stopped in Hyde Park Corner to admire the Household Cavalry making their way down to Horse Guard Parade. We finished the walk just after 9pm crossing 6 of the best London great parks. Then eight of us brilliantly ended the evening by savouring exotic delicacies at Wagamama Harvey Nichols. Everything was perfect: food, service, decor, vibrant conversations... The only disappointment was that they didn't distribute any toys with the food to compare with the plastic Albert Einstein that Peter had won with his McDonalds Happy Meal before the walk. This fabulous prize was given to Dave, who relished it so much that he said he would display it on top of his telly, next to the plastic Mr Egg that already resides there. A good start for our successful 2009 season of summer evening walks.
