The Englarts are a wonderful retired couple who certainly looked after us on our overnight stay. After a comfortable night's sleep, Trish prepared the "full English" for us, Alan helped me get the car back and then they took us on a very pleasant trip to St Alban's Cathedral, where they have sung in a choir on occasions. Alan entertained us with lots of stories and safely delivered us to the train for the trip back to London.
Alan and Trish
After getting back to London, we spent most of Tuesday looking around with Ben who was having a day off to go to the dentist. We walked through Hampstead Heath, took the train over to Hackney, had a late breakfast at Victoria Park and visited several other parks. The weather was warmer and almost sunny and we had a very good day.
Around Grand Union Canal
Before we flew out, we had a final wander around the centre of London, a quick shopping expedition to the East End area, and an evening visit to the National Gallery.
