We haven’t been out much over the last three days, partly because Tigger has had a sore throat and hasn’t felt on top form. We did make a few short forays out, though, and these were quite pleasant, enhanced by the lovely sunny weather we have been enjoying, despite the cold.
On New Year’s day, most shops and cafes were closed but the Millennium Cafe in Chapel Market was open so we breakfasted there. Afterwards, we walked through White Conduit Street where the second-hand shop was securely shuttered.
On Saturday, we were a little late in getting started and took the bus along Essex road.
We found a cafe open where we had brunch and then we returned to Angel where we found Sainsbury back in action but with gaps on the shelves – a besetting sin of that company.
Today we set out towards Kings Cross, passing Claremont Square, damp but sunlit, on the way.
We thought of visiting the Station Cafe at Kings Cross but when we got there, we found it closed. A few yards along is the Regent Quarter, a rebuilt area where new businesses are setting up.
In there we found the Camino, a Spanish cafe-restaurant offering an Anglo-Spanish vegetarian breakfast.
The rear gateway entrance to the Regent Quarter with its modern but well designed ironwork, leads to the Caledonian Road.
The combination of brightness and shadow from the low winter sun in Caledonian Road made an attractive picture. I almost forgot the cold!
