My Fair London – Battersea Park

Tuesday, 2 October 2012

I guess when you live in a city as vast as London, you are bound not to have seen all of it (even if the subject of this post is no more than 15 minutes away from your front door)! I can’t say for certain whether London will be my home forever so Jordan and I have started a London bucket list to ensure we get out and see as much of this incredible city as possible before it is time to move on. Battersea Park has been on this list for ages and I am so glad that we visited on a beautiful autumn day. The cold weather is starting to settle in for the long haul here in London but the real hunkering down has yet to begin. So on Saturday we took our camera and sushi (oh so civilized) and had a little walk-around in the fresh autumnal breeze amongst the leaves in the park which have just started to turn the faintest shade of gold.

  5. it reminds me of central park a bit, but a little more forest-y.

  7. It's always so thrilling to me that such beautiful rural escapes like this exist in urban environments. You'd never believe it! I love the big pine tree reflected in the water; that could be in a giant forest somewhere, not the middle of London! That sushi looks delicious, too.

  14. Oh so pretty, and your sushi looks yummy! Isn't it funny how you can live somewhere and not visit some of the places that tourists do?! Even in a small province like Hawke's Bay. The other day we played tourists and took the kids to places they'd never been although they're on our doorstep, it was so much fun. x
