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.
