Some more photos from our day trip to London.
We walked along Whitehall past Downing Street. I don’t remember seeing this memorial before.
I never knew Texas had its own Embassy – then I realised it was a restaurant!
Many of the shops were open late – I loved the colourfulness of them, their goods looking brighter than ever after dark – it reminded me of shopping trips to town with my mum at Christmas time when I was a little girl.
We didn’t do any shopping at all but this shop caught my eye. Mr George F. Trumper just seemed to sell shaving soap and other essentials for a man’s ablutions. I somehow find it illogically comforting that such shops even exist these days.
All in all, we had a great day and I felt rather proud of our capital city and a pang or two or patriotism. Then the bus picked us up just off the Haymarket and after an equally stress-free and relaxed ride home, wine and coffee being served on board, we climbed into bed about 11pm, very happy people.
Speaking of happy people, today is my blogversary. Three years, 103 followers (if you count Nick), 384 posts, more than 44,000 page views and a huge number of new friends, some of whom I even now meet up with in France.
My cup runneth over !!
