We always wanted to revisit it because it looked a lovely place. I love Battersea as well. I lived there for few years and the people are friendly and it's a place of contrast.
So off we went on a considerably warmer day than our last visit. Emily loved the trip down on the tube which was made doubly special as the Jubilee line was close from Green Park. This meant she had to hop onto another tube to South Kensington then bus it to Battersea bridge. Yep, our firstborn is a public transport junkie!! Hannah was a bit more laid back about it and slept through the whole excursion.
We decided to go to Battersea Park Children's ZooThere were quite a few small animals there; enough to keep Emily interested:........
...........otters..................& meercats to show just a few. There were also monkeys, ostriches, birds, farm animals......the list goes on....
& Emily frighteningly getting into the panto mood without prompting!!!!
Of course, Emily had to check out the activities as well!!!
After leaving the zoo we had a walk around the park. The Japanese Buddist padoga in the park is a thing of beauty and gives you the feeling of peace.
Here's a picture of Sharon in front of the pagoda....
............& a nice one of Sharon & Emily walking around it.I had to include this one of Emily. I just love it.
Now, you may be wondering where all the pictures are of Hannah. Well, she was asleep with whoever was taking the photographs. There will be plenty of pictures of her to follow in later entries, I promise!
Oh, if you're going to Battersea Park & decide to have some dinner there, visit the Prince Albert pub across the road. The staff were really friendly and the food was great.
