Scenes from a London Park.
The Spirals of Parliament against the backdrop of a perfect sky.
One of the best things about London is that it has lots of wonderful parks where one can easily forget that we are in a raging polluted Metropolis. This spot is in the lovely Regent’s Park. Note the Heron on the bridge ahead.
When one is walking the streets of London it is very important to look up. Half the magic is above the tree tops.
There is a very special shop in London known to many a tourist called Fortnum & Mason. They happen to have the best champagne truffles in the world. When we approached the Truffle Counter we noticed some divine chocolates laid out for tasting. It was a moment akin to heaven.
This Saxon Church was built in 1199. It boggles the mind. Walking inside and touching its cool walls you can almost feel the whispers of ancient prayers. It is a very special place.
I hear the Yew Tree is as old as the church.
( I love the English Country Side.)
See that tiny white horse up on that hill way back in the background? Well that was carved over 200 years ago. The English Country Side is ancient and wonderful and even more magical spent with old friends.
I love that moment when you stop for a glass of wine, pull out the map and figure out what is coming up next.
Amsterdam, city of the bike, city of the beautiful.
A wonderful melange of the old and new. This series of sculptures is in the courtyard of the Royal Academy of Art.
