wandering the woods – day 5

20130718-155906.jpg
london is hot. really, hot. like, fry an egg on the sidewalk hot. {at least for london, anyway. i’m certainly not unaccustomed to these temperatures in indiana.}

in response, i took the opportunity to spend most of my day yesterday once again enjoying hampstead heath and it’s wonderful bathing ponds – this time, the guys and gals, mixed pond.
wandering the woods of the park and taking a dip in the cool water made for an incredible day indeed.

here is a great article by jasmine gardner on other ways to keep cool in the city! {i especially favor her suggestions to eat lots of ice cream and enjoy some outdoor cinema, who really needs an excuse to do either of those things?!}

“For the best ice cream in London head to Gelupo (7 Archer Street, W1, gelupo.com) or to Ruby Violet in Tufnell Park, which has homemade, organic ice creams and sorbets. Rum raisin and candied orange peel should do the trick (118 Fortess Road, NW5, rubyviolet.co.uk). The delicious Ginger’s Comfort Emporium will be at Secret Garden Party next weekend (gingerscomfortemporium.com).”
