Friday Viewblogging

Image hosting by Photobucket

Another view from Hampstead Heath.

(I need to get a shot from the path by the running track. It's a fairly stunning panorama.)

It looks like it is chilly when you took the picture. People seem to be bundled up.

I bet there is history relating to Hampstead Heath since it is on a high spot overlooking London.

I'm with Schmutz. Is that a parka I see? I need to find out when it gets warmer in London before I decide when to visit. It looks very pretty, though.

That was taken a month ago.

Oh, now I see. So "Friday Viewblogging" doesn't mean you actually took the picture on this particular Friday. My mistake.

Yeah, I need to stop working so hard so I can get out and take more pictures. I'm missing out on thousands of flowers blooming!

I followed your link to Hampstead Heath and was disappointed. I think a major battle should have been fought there or at least an attacking army trying to surround and starve out the City of London during the Middle Ages. Oh well, another romantic notion thwarted!

Man, it's all battles and beheadings when it comes to London history, innit?

This site says:

It's thought that Parliament Hill took its name from it being a point of defence during the English Civil War - a place for the troops loyal to Parliament.

You can't actually see Parliament from Parliament Hill (in Canada, Parliament Hill is actually where Parliament meets) so that's as plausible a theory as I've heard.

Is that close enough for a battle?
