I left home early and decided to walk as I wasn't meeting my Greeter till 2.30pm.
Firstly to Kensington Gardens and then on through Hyde Park, finishing at Marble Arch.
Everyone was out and about enjoying the sunshine

|I really don't know but it's interesting|
|Inside, coffee, tea, ice cream and drinks!|
|A right Royal squirrel|
|All the Swans|
|With Peter Pan|
|The statue has been here since 1912 and the plaque since 1997|
Myra , my Greeter had worked in the library here for many years and has also helped compile a book about the area.
It's one of the 'now' places boasting many celebrities moving in - like Jamie Oliver and Robert Plant. A lot of the homes have plaques on them as poets, writers and artists had made this area home over the years.
Other claims to fame for Primrose Hill are:- the movies -
Paddington Bear, was filimed in the street where Myra lives!
Bridget Jones Diary, One Hundred and One Dalmations.
For the Music Lovers - Oasis took the black and white photo for the cover of the single 'Wonderwall' here.

Of course being in London Afternoon Tea was involved and on our way to The Primrose Bakery, we were joined by another friend of Myra's who wanted to meet an Aussie!
The Primrose Bakery is typical of your "Afternoon Tea" experience, lovely retro laminex tables and chairs and of course cup cakes. I chose a Rainbow Cake.
|Rainbow Cupcake - Delicious!|

A splendid view it is indeed and we sat and chatted whilst the sun began to set. Sadly this brought us to the end of my Greeter visit with Myra. I must say it was brilliant, even more so as I really did get to meet the locals and see things off the tourist track.
