And I am camouflaged! Better to hunt squirrels with! It was a beautiful Autumnal Day in London and we went for a walk in Kensington Gardens All the big dogs were out too, doing their thing The ground was covered with autumn leaves The trees are bare EXCELLENT for squirrelling! They won’t be able to spot me easily Aha! There’s one! So I stare at it and inch my way towards it. Closer, closer … And this time, I came close!
That’s because I am camouflaged and those silly squirrels could not see me coming!
After chasing a few squirrels Mummy said it was time to have lunch. Lunch? But my lunch is right here in the park! OK, guess we have to go feed Mummy.
We walked to Thackeray Street – not far from the park to a little Italian cafe – Ottoemezzo. It’s a cosy little place that’s brightly painted. Mummy said the food is authentic but I wouldn’t know as I didn’t get any.
Mummy had asked next door at their proper restaurant Locanda Ottoemezzo and very unlike most Italians, they said, “We do not allow dogs.” Why? Mummy asked. “Because …” and they did the Italian shrug. Just because they don’t. Very disappointing but for a little Italian after a walk, the Cafe was fine.
May’s comment: Too more dog-friendly places in Kensington – just off the High Street tucked away in the back of Whole Foods. Montparnasse is a quaint French patisserie tucked behind the high street. Once inside you may believe you are in Paris. Located at 22 Thackeray St, Kensington, London W8 5ET
Ottoemezzo Cafe opened in 1995, serving delicious focaccia sandwiches and fantastic cappuccinos. An all day cafe, it has since has evolved to offer a full range of Italian dishes including pizzas. Located at 2-4 Thackeray St, Kensington, London W8 5ET
