Battersea Day Out

Last Thursday when the weather turned warmer, a leisurely day out in Battersea was a welcome treat.  Walking along the restored historic Coaling Jetty by the River Thames in front of Battersea Power Station, eating lunch outside in a riverside restaurant in front of the ‘Piazza Batterseats’ felt like being on holiday. In Battersea Park people were relaxing on the grass, having picnics, feeding the ducks, sitting around at the lakeside café and playing cricket. The Victorian park has beautiful trees, plants and ecological areas and was a total contrast to going home through Peckham as day light was fading away.
