A grand day out!

Standard

Talking to fellow bloggers is fun, but meeting them is even better.

Luckily Alastair lives in the same country as me and only a train journey away from London.

We met on Saturday and spent a wonderful day together.

We went on the cable car, walked over the Thames, saw Whitehall, No 10 Downing Street, Trafalgar Square packed with people, Leicester Square, Piccadilly, Buckingham Palalce and went through lovely parks. Of course we stopped at coffee shops and had a dinner break.

We walked miles. We ended up in my all time favourite park, St. James’s Park with lots of ducks, squirrels, and the most beautiful flowers and shrubs.

I played around with my flower pictures and here is the result. Some with quotes.

London seemed to be the friendliest place on Saturday. People smiled, hold doors open, chatted on the underground, gave up seats, and it was one big happy place.

Perfect for having a friend round, so I loved to show my wonderful London to Alastair.

It was such a fantastic day!

If you have time and you are not too far away , you are very welcome to visit and I show you round too!

Get your walking shoes on….
