I'm back with a long overdue post of our London weekend, I have no idea where the time went in between then and now, only that I have been busy with one thing and another and the opportunity to blog seemed to keep passing me by.
The weekend was fabulous, we saw and did lots of things that were new to us including a walk through Hyde Park, the Serpentine, a walk through Kensington Park and the Diana Fountain, (not what I expected), but as you will see the weather was beautiful and there were lots of people making the most of the sunshine and children splashing about in the water so it was all good.
Unfortunately the people who organise the walking tours had cancelled the one the girls bought us which was a shame, we were both looking forward to it, the reason they gave was the recent events in London, (the incidents on Westminster bridge and the one outside Parliament). The tour would have taken in much of this area so for this year at least they made the decision to cancel that particular tour. Hopefully we will be able to transfer the voucher to another tour at a future date.
As we had now got more time on the Sunday we decided to visit Brick Lane again. We have already been several times to Brick Lane and absolutely love it. The atmosphere is fantastic, as is the food :-) It is also a great place to pick up vintage things, clothes, records and things for the home, which Mark calls tat , but I love :-) Even if you don't buy anything it's still worth going just for the atmosphere alone.
I'll stop rabbiting on now and leave you with some, (ok, a lot) of photos from our weekend, I hope you enjoy looking :-)
