  Sunday Picnic "East London Style"

Click on the image to see another version of the picture, you can tell me wich one you like best

For a Sunday Picnic "East London Style":
-Take a Canal...the Regent´s Canal will do.

-Go for some basics of the Jewish heritage in East London...bagels.
Salt Beef with lots of hot mustard (it opens and cleanses your nostrils to an incredible extent)
Lox Smoked salmon with cream cheese. (Just £1,30!)
The beer is Dutch...the first one we could find...but it will also do the trick.

-And once you´ve got all the ingredients...simply seat by a lock along the Canal and enjoy.
You cand do it over as much as you like.

As we were enjoying this lovely picnic, a boat came by and filled the lock up...that´s the reason you can see the water surface on the picture...it took it 5 minutes to fill the lock, get in, empty the lock and slowly dissapear eastward.
Iban, carne con mostaza y salmón con queso cremoso y una cerveza al lado de un canal! Se nota que eres un enamorado de los sabores, aromas y de la naturaleza.

A mi me gusta más la foto en la que has quitado el color de fondo.

Me encantan los paseos en bicicleta. Veraneé en Copenhague durante toda mi infancia y adolescencia (pues mi familia materna es danesa)y ahí la bici se utilizaba para todo.Me pegaba paseos larguísimos con esas bicis urbanas (nada de mountain bikes ni bicis de carreras) Por eso comprendo el placer de eso paseos y tus picnics.

Gracias por tus comentarios en mi blog. Espero que hayas empezado bien tu entrenamiento para San Sebastián
Ayer, en uno de mis paseos diarios en bici, estuve sentada en un sitio muy parecido. En un banco frente a una esclusa muy antigua. Pero sin Heineken y sin bocadillo. Con un helado de fruta de un típico tenderete de allí.También hice varias fotos. Y tiene molino incluido!
Para Hilario: bravo por el comentario sobre la bici!

Like its 1766 predecessor, the (Click link for more info and facts about Limehouse Cut) Limehouse Cut, the Hertford Union Canal was intended to provide a straight short-cut between the (The longest river in England; flows eastward through London to the North Sea) River Thames and the (Click link for more info and facts about River Lea Navigation) River Lea Navigation, utilising a short stretch of the (Click link for more info and facts about Regent's Canal) Regent's Canal.

Promoted by Sir George Duckett and authorised by an Act of Parliament in 1824, it opened in 1830 and was for some years known as Duckett's Canal. Never a commercial success, it was eventually acquired by the Regent's Canal Company in 1857
Definitely my kind of pic-nic! ;-)
