Friday February 17th was an extraordinary day. For so many wonderful and interesting reasons. I had taken a days holiday to have a special meal with my oldest friends in the evening and we decided to extend the fun in to the entire day. I skipped breakfast and just had hot water with ginger and lime to save calories for later. I picked up my friend Lucy and we travelled to London together for a day of interesting experiences and fun.
Being kind and considerate, Sally had booked a vegan cafe for us to meet at and eat in. We met in Vauxhall Grove at the Bonnington Cafe. The lentil soup was rather bland but lunch with the girls is always fun.This little area was delightful.After a leisurely lunch, we set off to our next destination which involved a lovely walk in relatively warm sunshine along the River Thames.Destination, Tate Britain.
MillbankWe went to the Hockney exhibition. It was crowded but excellent. I am a huge fan and I have never seen his work before. Definitely worth a visit, obviously for the art but also for the experience of being in this amazing building.I resisted cake and milky tea and stuck to a green tea.
On our way to dinner we happened to see this extraordinary car which had been custom made for the owner who was happy to chat to us and let us photograph his car. You don’t see many of these at the station car park!
Dinner was at Chamber of Flavours which was certainly an experience. It was unusual and good fun and I am sworn to secrecy so I can’t tell you anything about it.
I had a brilliant day out with very dear friends. I felt very blessed and I ate as well as can be expected on such a day. I was really good all day and only had lentil soup but dinner was a fixed 4 course meal with wine and I enjoyed it all.
