kings cross

cannot believe the changes to kings cross, each month that i visit there are more and more buildings going up and events happening.  today we walked along the canal banks, watching life on the banks – fishing, sunbathing, boats cruising back and forwards, runners, cyclists – its all happening down there.  I still haven’t been to the new pond club – a temporary art installation that you can swim in!  its open in the day and i am pondering whether i am daring enough to brave the cold!  you can climb up to the nearby viewing point and take a peak!  there is also the wonderful skip garden - a portable garden that uses the available land between the building sites and cranes of kings cross -it produces fruit and vegetables that are used in the skip kitchen cafe – definitely on my list of things to do.  there are so many new restaurants around granary square,  caravan, the greek larder, the grain store, dishoom and  the newly opened Ligherman.    I love the bookshop on the boat,  word on the water with a saxophonist playing on top.
