Day out in London

What fantastic weather this weekend during our mini-heatwave. Yesterday Pauline and I had the opportunity to meet up with most of the family in London. A long day - we left home in Tunbridge Wells at 8.45am on Saturday morning and arrived back home 12.45 am on this Sunday morning - but a great day. We met our son Daniel with our grandchildren Benjamin aged 2 and Madeleine aged 1, our daughter Nina and her fiancé Paul at Waterloo.

In glorious sunshine and blue skies we all boarded a Thames Clipper water bus at the London Eye and journeyed downriver beneath Tower Bridge and the Tower of London as far as Canary Wharf.

Canary Wharf was pleasantly quiet on a Saturday - lunch en famille at the Wharf:


Daniel has the biggest single pizza I've ever seen

Back at Waterloo we parted company with Daniel and the grandchildren and took a bus journey across the West End to Nina and Paul's flat in St Johns Wood where we chilled out reading the papers. In the evening Nina and Paul took us out for a lovely meal at the 5* Landmark Hotel in Marylebone:


A memorable day.
