Fantastic Day in Greenwich

I decided to spend some time in Greenwich (London) today, taking the bus to Blackheath then walking to Greenwich via the park.
I was greeted by this amazing view

There was a Tall Ships Festival happening on the River Thames so it was full of vintage craft.

I walked down the hill to the Queen’s House and found some Oriental drummers performing on the lawn

Then spent some time inside the galleries of the house where the exhibition ‘Art and Science of Exploration’ was showing.
Afterwards I went to the indoor arts market down the road and got my mum a gorgeous hand painted ceramic vase.
I then popped into mum’s house where I found her cooking me a traditional Jamaican sunday dinner which included loads of her homegrown vegetables.

This is chicken fregasse, made with a Broiler or ‘old chicken’ ie it had lived a long time and was very big.
It was cooked in a traditional Dutchy Pot.
We also had homegrown tomato salad with rice and peas, but my mum used homegrown red beans instead of peas.

It was really delicious.
My sister Maria was at the same time also having fun at her annual street party on the other side of London. :)
