Churches, Sean and Selfies
04.05.2015 - 04.05.2015
We set off armed with a new book of historical church sites, the best tour guide London has to offer me and we hit the streets in search of perfect steeples, spires, ruins and history. Again we found hidden treasures in lane ways, behind other buildings but of course at the end of Fleet St stood St Paul' s. No photo will show its enormous presence.
We have inherited Kirsty's loathing for selfies resulting from the number of people and couples who make every photo opportunity about them. We've stuck to photographing architecture, landscapes, landmarks and 'BORING THINGS ' like that! The only other more popular photo opportunity was Sean the Sheep in die-cast in Leicester square. Everone had a shot with him??? Mmm
We met up with Ally Wardrop for a wonderful catch up drink and dinner. She's spreading her wings to follow a dream...good on her!!!
Southbank, with 57 million people amid a festival swallowed us up at one point, until we escaped the claustrophobic herd and headed For the bells at Westminster. Rob had trouble coping with people having to stop walking mid stream to listen to the peeling......no appreciation for sound 😐
Exhausted after getting up at 5am ( I had been informed it was 6 until i was in the shower ) and then on the move until 9:30 pm i was nodding off on the underground train as we returned home...a little boy kept using his fingers on his own face to indicate to me I had to open my eyes. For a brief second with the only energy i could muster up..i smiled and closed my eyes again.
We crashed into bed after wishing Gav and Ness a happy birthday so it would be in their message inbox when they got up and the slept like babies. Whilst yesterday was sunny for the most part, we have woken to another cloudy drizzly day, my wateroroof is my new fashion now.
Sign board read yesterday "the cup does not matter it's the quality of the coffee that counts". For a brief moment i missed work...well the coffee machine at least.
My tour guide awaits so i had best get myself moving....talk later DnR
