Gelato in the Park

Brockwell Park

What is sunny weather without ice-cream? In British terms this could really be at any time and not necessarily during summer either. During one of the odd spells of April sunshine, Stuart and I managed to drag ourselves to the park and discovered, to my delight, that the park cafe had started selling gelato.

Gelato - Brockwell Park, Tulse Hill

I just had to have a scoop of bacio - chocolate and hazelnut. I adore hazelnuts! And I love chocolate too.

Bacio - Brockwell Park, Tulse Hill

Ahh bacio is certainly a flavour made in heaven.

Strawberry - Brockwell Park, Tulse Hill

Stuart had a scoop of strawberry which came delightfully with large chunks of strawberries swirled throughout . Much to my irritation his was actually better than mine. Lighter on the tummy too considering we just had a huge feast at a newly found Portuguese cafe (more on that later). I did end up eating quite a bit of his and he was handed the remainder of mine :D One just has to learn to be very persuasive lol

Raffy - Why poor Stu? He got almost a whole extra scoop of ice cream :P Contrary to popular belief, I am rather nice to him. So long away from England, cannot remember the colour of strawberries, izzit? lol

Paprika - Actually it was less than 20C and we were already whooping :D I was wearing my woolen coat whilst I was eating ice cream. So sad right? Though I think my sister's outfits still consist of tank tops and mini skirts...
