There is a wealth of inpiration, history and people to comment on. Already each day i am remembering things i forgot to include in our blog the day before...I am trusting it is brain overload not a sign of impending memory failure. Only being married to a Wardrop would result in a girl travelling to Knightsbridge and not setting foot in a shop! The fact we were on the top level of a London bus meant I was unable to even accidently slide through the door of Harrods ... sorry to all female shoppers...I let the team down. However as is the case every day here its a matter of too much to see and too little time. Prioritising lead us to The Victoria and Albert museum, The Albert Hall, The Natural History Museum, Queens Gate and to pass by Hyde Pk. We ate lunch in the coffee shop at The Albert Hall and shared a table with some lovely people who were attending a Church Conference. The conference was called Alpha and its aim is for all christians and churches to have a sense of unity. We enjoyed their company, stories and friendliness over lunch.
We then headed for The Mousetrap...my first live play at West End. Another 'must do' crossed off the bucket list ☺. The audience were sworn to secrecy at the end not to divulge 'who did it'. It has been running for 63 years so I guess there may be the odd person in the world who has not seen it yet! I WILL keep the secret.
Sadly our London time is over but no doubt what is ahead will be as wonderful. I will however, make up the girl shopping with Jenny later in the trip. Mum and Ally won't let me back into Aust without some special purchases.
I will add at this point Rob passed a bk store and did not enter... to avoid temptation to buy ..... Such self control for us both!
So now .... out of the city.... the open roads await.
