Who doesn’t love a long weekend, I sure do.
After working biceps and back at our gym, me and my other half took a diverted walk home. Our gym in Tottenham Hale is close to the River Lea, so we had a lovely stroll along the riverside. Couples, singletons, cyclists, boaters and even canoeists were enjoying the warm afternoon, not forgetting the pretty white flock of swans.
The river Lea is a the child to the River Thames and a rival in terms of its length. It wriggles through many North and East London boroughs. Starting at Luton Bedfordshire, through Hertfordshire, Essex County, through urban London and finally reaching the Thames at Limehouse.
Our walk led us through parts of Hackney Marshes, and Green Flag award winning Walthamstow Marshes nature reserves widespread grassland, it made a lovely romantic and peaceful walk back home, a really great way to unwind after a session at the gym.
Towards the end of our post gym walk, we passed the 14th century famous Walthamstow Copper Mill and water reservoirs. An afternoon well spent I’d say!
In the evening we went to see the new Avengers- Age of Ultron and just like all the other Marvel films, this one did not disappoint. With an incredible cast, Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man Mr Stark and Mark Ruffalo as Hulk being my two favourites. With a rating of 8.2 on IMDb, viewers agree with me when I say it was an action packed, fun fuelled film.
