So we started off at Vauxhall Bridge. And the tide was out so we braved it down onto the foreshore. You get such a different view of London.
I've lived in London for 25 years now and I've only recently started to venture onto the foreshore but it's so liberating.
I had never spotted these lions before next to the way back up to the Thames path. They follow you up the slope back to dry land and are quite magnificent.
A little further down stream we could see our target. But sadly the path didn't look open at all
So we were forced back onto the main road for part of the walk which wasn't a great view though I did spot this funky building as part of the Nine Elms complex.
But I did manage to get some close up images of the redevelopment of Battersea through a hole in the fence
After we past the power station we crossed over the road and went for a wander around Battersea Park but by that time it was so grey I just wasn't inspired to take any photos. Still it did get us out and about and it was good to take in some fresh air to clear the January cobwebs.
