When the sun shines in this city the parks fill up with sun worshippers. Regents Park is a popular destination not only for its green spaces, playing fields and flowers, but also for the fabulous water features. Triton fountain was designed by William McMillan of Trafalgar Square fame. It adds a touch of fantasy in the midst of this crowded city, heaving with life even in the midst of senseless loss. Gazing at the rippling waters, you can forget where you are and when, and imagine the blast of a conch horn, roaring winds and mountainous waves. Or at least I can, when the sun glints off the the water just right and a seagull cries overhead, I’m there in the Aegean Sea swimming out to greet the merman god himself.
