As recommended by Stuart I went into the Driftwood Cafe in Trinity Bouy Wharf. Very delightful and friendly cafe by the river and makes my top ten. Yummmy food indeed!

 Such a charming walk from Pontoon Dock to the Thames Barrier Park overlooking the Thames Barrier from the northside. I must come back to the inviting cafe when I have more time.

Just had to nip over to the Stolen Space Gallery to see for the last time ~ “Gorditas de Chicharron 5”  ~ Painted by Miss Van. Someone paid £14,000 (plus vat)  for the pleasure of hanging this! Hmmmm I guess I’m happy with my free snaps!
