Today we went on 7.5 mile with the group Walk London. The walk began at Tottenham Hale State and ended at Limehouse Station.
It followed along the River Lee / Lee Canal has it headed south toward the Thames River.
The beginning of the walk was quite idyllic. The Lee was lined with house boats and Hasidic Jewish families out on a Sabbath morning stroll.
We walked along the Walthamstow Marshes to the Middlesex Filter Beds, then to the Hackney Marshes, and on to London's 2012 Olympic Park.
It was the perfect place to see wildflowers.
The day was mild and pleasant.
It was nice to see large green open spaces.
Besides the houseboats, the Lee was full of kayaks.
There were also a series of locks along the way.
Mute Swans, and Magpies, Coots, and Herons, Cormorants, and Moorhens.
Herring Gulls, Song Thrushes, Canada Geese and Green Woodpeckers.
This was my favorite art installation along the way.
It is called 'Rise and Shine Magic Fish'.
Isn't that an iconic English scene? Cricket!
Here's a look at the Olympic Stadium.
I enjoyed watching the boats and birds along the canal.
There was a nice area to rest at Three Mills.
The Mill was quite picturesque.
It looked back upon some disused gas storage areas.
We ended at Limehouse...
...where these two houseboats were festooned with flowers.
