Photo # 14. Serenity in Central London

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.

Photo # 13 Always Look Up

When one is walking the streets of London it is very important to look up. Half the magic is above the tree tops.

Photo # 12 A heavenly moment in a shop

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.

Photo # 11. Ancient Church

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.)

Photo # 10 . 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.
