A Perfect Day
A long, great day starting with a swim then a nostalgic walk: a ride to Notting Hill Gate on the 328 from outside the Chelsea Bun, then back through Holland Park, stopping for lunch in the cafe, along Kensington High St then south along Exhibition Road in tropical heat to square one for a birthday dinner in the open air as the sky slowly darkened. The city streets are quiet at this time of year, and the flowers and trees have never been more spectacular after so much rain in the spring and early summer.
