After what feels like an entire season dedicated to rain, we were rewarded with relatively pleasant weather on Saturday..can i get a ‘hooray’?. All be it a lil‚Äô nippy, it was dry! & The glorious winter sun made the occasional appearance *round of applause please*
Donning our warmish attire, we all bundled into the car & headed out to make the most of the afternoon. We popped over to Dulwich park, where Bear thoroughly enjoyed running in & out of the shrubbery with Daddy not far behind‚Ä¶
Bear engaged in one of his favorite skyward-bound activities-plane spotting .‚Ä¶
After a burst of energetic enthusiasm, it was time to ward off a chill by seeking a warm drink & a nibble from the village shops.
We stumbled upon Gail‚Äôs artisan Bakery. It was bursting at the seam with villagers & that‚Äôs sure to be a good sign so we dived in.
They had a nice selection of drinks, pastry goodies & a couple of gluten free choices. We were Happy campers! I had a tasty Green Tea & gluten free coconut macaroon, Bear & Daddy shared a couple of cookies‚Ä¶…Someone likes chocolate
Walking back from the village we took a little detour through Dulwich picture gallery.
The architecture, style & design of this place are very pleasing on the eye. Investigating it further will have to wait for another time as a little someone had a chocolate-induced-sugar-rush on the horizon & frankly a gallery is no place for this melt down to take place!
¬†I do love visiting this village; it has such a friendly feel. You feel welcomed & as if you‚Äôre part of the community, not something that you‚Äôd usually expect in a ‚ÄòLondon‚Äô suburb. & Is it just me, or do you find the sun always shines in Dulwich?
It‚Äôll probably be another year now until we visit again; we really should visit more often. If any of you have a ‚Äòsecret gems‚Äô hidden away in Dulwich Village be sure to share them with me & it‚Äôll give me the oomph to get back there sooner to investigate‚Ä¶‚Ä¶
