Bright and sunny mornings in London are some of the best in the world. The tourist areas are quiet, the buzz of the city is at a low hum from commuters headed to work. This is where I found myself on a beautiful Friday morning last week.
I took a roundabout route into work – grabbing my typical Starbucks coffee to walk down Regents Street to St James Park. I sat in the sunshine with my book and enjoyed the warm sunshine. It wasn’t crowded, the tourists were still at breakfast, and true Londoners (if they spared the time) are able to enjoy the spoils of their city without the fuss.
Green grass was fried brown in patches, a victim of too much sunshine and no rain – London loses its sparkle when this happens, even though we enjoy the rare sun. You have to love the rain as much as the good weather – the country needs it.
Off to work refreshed and relaxed – this is the way to start a day.
