Down at the North end of Millenium Bridge, a guided foreshore walk with Thames Explorer, charity. Wasn’t free even though my ticket said so and all the web site journey said it was. Slightly embarassed. The patch of shore is small and uninviting. But there’s nothing like hearing the tidal waves lap up on the stony foreshore and see the River Thames from a different angle. Our guide found a horse’s jaw and someone else found a fossilized sea urchin. Children enjoyed themselves over the 90 minutes or so. Me? I’d rather watch paint dry. How come European laws for H&S haven’t swooped on this part of river education? There’s a nasty steep un-railed staircase from the cement top down to the shore sand and rock. A few people went down on their bottoms to be extra safe. I met a woman who’d slipped on the last step and fallen onto the big rocks. Always aware of disabled and older people’s access, me.
Johny Vaughn just had to act all excited on the mud larking series he did. Weren’t all that.
Dahn the Lane yesterday with Clive Bettington of Jewish East End Celebration Society. Spitalfields again. That was good and arranged through Hackney Museum.
Saw the Whitechapel Gallery Restaurant. Hmm! Tiny. Had a tour of the East London Mosque. Hmm! promoting Islam. Ate in Iskele’s, White Cross Street, E1. Hmm nowt special but I had a Groupon Voucher so didn’t pay massive.
Summer came in!

That’s what BTCV stands for. We had a walk in Finsbury Park this morning. Remember that the London 2012 borough of Waltham Forest (who’d have known?) has joined up with LB Haringey. Who actually knows that except the greens? So at long last I got to include myself in a wonderful experience in North London. Finsbury Park is like a dead beast full of maggots on a Sunday morning: The place is heaving. All sorts of running groups, American Football going on, open air gym, cafe, kiddies’ playgrounds, laid-out gardens, squirrels, Canada Geese, moorhen, Mallards, dogs on leads, and the sun shone brightly.
Before all of that I passed through Clapton Pond, Hackney and the new leaves are streaming on the willows there. Blossom all the way to Manor House and Purim craziness going on from Amhurst Park to Lower Clapton. Good day. Wanted to stop at Grodzinski’s for some poppy seed cake but next year maybe.
Spent time this weekend too at Open Stage 2012 Theatre Royal Stratford east E15 .What a project! We volunteer to work in the surrounding community to uphold the original ethos of TRSE as outlined by Joan Littlewood. This time we had another opportunity to go backstage , to see the hemp house with the massive manilla ropes. There’s one particular heavy rope which only one woman has ever pulled. Hey ho! I also pulled that bugger. Trumpet fanfare ….Gym paying off .
Back to my reading today “East Of Eden” for tomorrow is reading group at Homerton Library in Brooksby’s Walk, Hackney.Love that book. Love Homerton too.
Minty off Eastenders is coming to Downsell Park, Tottenham N 15 on March 28th 2pm to open the cafe there. Eastenders post code is E20….so is the new build part of Stratford east i .e. Westfields etc.
