June 15, 2015 LLG Plays & Stays

London: A Hampstead Heath Sunday with the dogs

June 13, 2015 Dogs

(The Mens’ Bathing Pond on Hampstead Heath last Sunday.)   I’ve been in Detroit since Thursday afternoon and am little disappointed to discovered that the predicted 25C+ temperatures haven’t materialised – and that the weather was nicer back in London last weekend.
