Thanks for popping in.
London was super boiling for two days this week- 29°C. All at once the blossom blossomed, tulips opened up and the sky turned spectacularly Australian-blue. As luck would have it our February-planned trip was the hottest April day since 1949. It could have snowed.
The Embankment Gardens looked unbelievable with its stripy mown grass and vibrant splashes of colour.
The South Bank, trees beginning to leaf, sizzled. Sand artists were busy on Ernie's Beach, named after activist John "Ernie" Hearn who worked tirelessly against the encroachment of development along the Thames.
With St Paul's coming ever closer, our walk will take us past The Globe with its convenient café.
Let's pop in. It's thirsty work, got to keep hydrated. A pear and almond tart seems a good partner to the pear and ginger tea.
. . . to London City Hall on the other.
So much to see and do. So many bridges to cross, each with a slightly different view. Here's the Festival Hall and the South Bank from one of the Golden Jubilee Bridges next to the railway carrying Hungerford Bridge as we head for the station and home.
What have we been doing, where have we been? I'm going to keep you guessing. 😊
