Still moored at Paddington Basin.

This morning was a leisurely start to the day. First chore was to check the batteries, refill the stern greaser and make a start on cleaning up in the engine hole ready to repaint.

Late morning and we went for a walk up Edgeware road to Maida Vale road where the tunnel goes over the Regents canal on its way to Camden and Islington.  Then walking down memory lane and spotting an apartment we rented in Sussex Gardens on our honeymoon many years ago before heading for Hyde Park and a picnic in the sun.
