In light of the much welcomed 4-day weekend during the Easter holidays, my sisters suggested we go for a picnic. This was always going to be tricky to plan considering how unpredictable the weather is in London. Banking on the Sun for Good Friday, we decided to give Spring living a chance and head out to St James’s Park. One of London’s oldest of the eight Royal Parks and includes The Mall and Horse Guards Parade.
With the Cherry Blossom trees in full bloom in and around London we took to the park like Spring was here to stay but with the sun playing pick-a-boo the picnic was not as long as I would have loved, as it suddenly got a bit chilly and it was time to head back home for a proper cup of tea. That wasn’t before my niece and nephew had played football with Mr Awesome and chased the pigeons around the park, fed the ducks, or made bubbles from the soap and bubble gun. All the while my sisters and I were enjoying a leisure moment with some lemonade, sandwiches and dessert while chilling out to Emeli Sande. I had brought my trusted portable Bose speaker with me to offer some background music to our day out with nature. Once the weather got to bitter to bear we decided on walking back home as its not too far from the park, but that meant maneuvering through the sea of tourist taking selfies around the red telephone boxes at White Hall or pictures with Big Ben in view.
So are you doing anything special for the Easter/Spring Bank Holidays?
