Parklife

The lovely jm_horse came over on Sunday for a frugal lunch of soup and bread, followed by an improving stroll in Crystal Palace Park.

I have been living in Crystal Palace for nearly 18 months now, but I still haven't explored every corner of the massive park. On this occasion we checked out the little museum, found the centre of the maze, visited the dinosaurs, and said hello to the animals at the petting zoo city farm before getting a drink at the café.

To do when weather improves: pedalos.

The best new fact I learned about Crystal Palace was that Hiram Maxim, inventor of the machine gun and inhabitant of West Norwood, raised money for more serious projects by designing fairground rides based on his aeronautical theories.
