While I appreciate it's not exactly living in the countryside I do like walking along and near the canal in London. It makes me feel slightly more 'out of the city' than feeling very urban all the time. Tuesday saw Jonah and I walking to his gym class as a canal boat stepped up (is that the boating term??) the lock heading westwards along Regents Canal. A good 10 minutes of free 4 year old style entertainment ... brilliant!
