Angela and I are off work this week, as it is half-term here in London.
Half-terms come around every few months, but it was 1937 when it last snowed in London in October.
We put on our walking boots and walked a circular trip around Hampstead Heath via Kenwood, the Old Bull and Bush, West Heath, the Vale of Health and Parliament Hill, finishing with lunch in the Italian Cafe at Parli Hill.
It was amazing how few people we encountered.
The sun sent halos of light through the autumn sky
You could see that in snow, shadows are actually blue
And it seemed almost as if we had come upon the spirit of the Heath itself, energy writhing in tree form
All in all, a stunning day.
