Picnic in the Park

We have been having some glorious weather the last few days in the UK, although it is all set to change tomorrow I believe, it never lasts long here so you have to make the most of each opportunity. My friend and I decided to go for a picnic in our favourite Victorian park, calling in at Marks & Spencer on the way for the food. M&S do the best food for parties, picnics and the like. When we arrived at the park, to our delight we found a brass band playing. There were lots of people with their own picnics and barbecues, listening to the music and enjoying the sunshine. A perfect Sunday.
