As usual I met up with my lovely friend Fliss on the Saturday :D This time we decided to get the DLR to Greenwich. First of all we got a good lunch in a cafe that I forgot to get the name of, but it did incredible avocado on toast! We then had a wander around Greenwich Market where Fliss found some Vegan goodies and a lovely bird necklace, and I bought some gorgeous paua shell earrings for my ever-growing silver earring collection, as well as some salted caramel chocolate bars from Blowing Dandelion, which my mum and I shared later in the week, and they were amazing!
We also spent some time simply taking in the scenery, admiring the beauty of the Cutty Sark, and enjoying delicious treats we found in the market. I bought a cannoli siciliano from Casa Cannoli which I wholeheartedly recommend if you like your cannoli pastries as much as I do!
I took a fair number of photos during the day with my Nikon F55 and Ilford HP5 film which I developed last weekend in my darkroom. Here are my favourites...
As well as perusing the market, and wandering along the "beach" area we walked to Greenwich Park where there was a spectacular view from the top of the hill.
After hanging out in Greenwich we got a delicious dinner in Wagamama's in Spitalfields before I headed back to my hotel. On the Sunday I had planned to spend some time taking photos along Brick Lane but I got up a bit later than I'd planned and there wasn't enough time before my train. I'm sure I'll be going back there soon enough though.
It was really nice to be amongst some greenery for a while and to have a good catch-up with Fliss. :)
