The day starts on the river, far west and south, near Vauxhall station, looking downriver. Note the London Eye ferris wheel in the background – this is across the river from Big Ben.
Does this remind you of Habitat ’67 in Montreal?!
We took a riverside walk from Vauxhall Station to Battersea Park
London has some great bike lanes, but this isn’t one of them. Count the fails!
Rearward angle of the iconic Battersea Power Station (yes, from the Pink Floyd cover). The roof was removed in the 1980s and not replaced – note you can see the sky through the windows!
Food fest! We had discount 2-for-1 tickets (7.50 each) via a coupon code.
Cooking demo from two (apparently famous) celeb chefs. They made catelloni from scratch in 30 minutes – not bad!
I need a bathtub full of gin in my life. There was a lot of free booze at this festival and I had a tough time keeping the camera still by the end of it…
Jerking it up.
Battersea Power Station in the background!
Castillo de Diablo wine tasting. The presenter was truly awful – I kept the camera running in case he fell off the stage drunk! These wines were pretty bad too. Whites are terribly dry, and the reds hit & miss. We’ve had the Malbec before (GBP5 in the UK, C$10 in Canada) and it’s alright.
Squozen before your very eyes, and good value at GBP1.00 per glass
