I went to Camden Town today to replenish our stocks of cat food. The shop I go to is Palmer’s in Parkway.
As I turned to leave, this was the sight that met my eyes. There are two cats occupying the shop, grey tabbies like Freya. You may meet them in the body of the shop or on the counter. This one is trying out the stock and finding it perfect for its purpose! Here is a closer view:
Camden High Street crosses the Regent’s Canal at the famous Camden Lock.
There are canal trips that leave from here but the area is best known for its markets selling a wide range of goods and for the shops of Camden High Street which provide clothes, shoes and all other accessories and accoutrements for style-conscious people.
I didn’t tarry today as I didn’t feel like exploring the market which can become very crowded, although this is perhaps the best time of year to visit it when there are fewer tourists and holiday-makers.
I did, however, take a look down Inverness Street, which has its own market.
We sometimes come here to have breakfast at Solo Cafe, which is on the left, hidden by the stalls. They do a very good vegetarian breakfast and I am looking forward to my next visit!
