Coffee Roasting and Hampstead Heath
Saturday 4th April 2020
Roasted coffee beans in the morning out in the garden, then went for an early evening walk to Hampstead Heath (thinking it would be quieter then).
London April 2020
At the start of the process - green beans in a baking tray atop my Biolite campstove.
Part way through.
The end result - very difficult to get an even roasting!
On our early evening walk to the heath, we passed the camel on the corner of Highgate Road, which looks like it has been repainted recently.

On the Heath now. Thankfully not too overrun with other people out walking.
The moon visible there.
Looking towards Highgate - I've always thought this view really underlines the sense of Highgate still being a village.

If any authoritarian / judgemental types are seeing this and considering a Twitter-esque fit of outrage because this doesn't count as exercise then (A) we didn't linger for more than a few minutes, (B) we were tens of metres away from the nearest other people, (C) this is the one and only time we left our house together all week and (D) my sentiments towards people like you cannot adequately be conveyed on a webpage my parents read.
The moon in the early evening sky.
This is clearly exercise.
Had we lingered longer we might have been able to see a bit of a sunset... but of course we didn't.
The camel again on the way back home.
