    First trip to the park with a guitar for this year. Hopefully many more if we get good weather.

    Something nice about playing in the sun. Gets the creativity going in a slightly different way.

    And passersby seemed to appreciate it. I recommend it.

    Anyone else noodling in the open air for fun?

    Love that your park noodling essentials ran to a boutique amp and loop pedal. Priorities.

    Well done. Sitting in the park playing electric guitar has to just feel good.

    Is that a London park? I remember my wife and I used to love walking over to Regents Park from our flat in Bloomsbury on a warm summer day. One of my favourite parks in the capital. Always preferred it to Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. We used to enjoy Holland Park too when I lived in Notting Hill.

    It's a large park in east London called Wanstead Flats (because it's, well, very flat). It's not very well known outside of the local area, and hence it tends to be pretty quiet much of the time. In fact the only time I've ever seen it busy is weekends during lockdown - because there's nowhere else to go.

    It's kind of featureless, apart from a few little copses of trees and a pond that's home to a lot of wildfowl. But I like it. Mainly for its bleak charms.

    Its main claim to fame is that most summers some of it burns. A couple of years ago there was a huge grass fire that destroyed about 30 acres of it, about a 10th of its size, and that needed more than 200 firefighters to extinguish. But it has bounced back.
