London in the fall
I took a lot of pictures the day we went to London - these are the mighty scaled down ones...by more than half!
But I have to say even though I adore the countryside and love the coast, I absolutely love, love, love London in the Autumn - it's so romantic...especially on a bright blue crisp and gorgeous day.
OK so taking the crowds out of the equation - it wasn't really that busy to be honest, but it was by far one of 'the most' photogenic places I have ever visited.
I said 'smile' and London smiled right back at me.
We went ::
■ From the station straight to Buckingham Palace...for the kids to see if they could spy some royalty - naturally.
■ Walked down the Mall and just caught the royal horseguards on the change around.
■ Headed across the cobbles to Big Ben - where we caught her chiming at midday - twelve 'boings!' - oh how easily thrilled we are as a family.
■ Saw the London eye then headed to the tube over to St Paul's Cathedral.
■ Next the Millennium bridge then down river to Tower Bridge where we took a little detour to...
■ The Gherkin.
■ Where we dined on scrummy cakes and had a most welcome break.
■ Retraced our steps and decided to take on The Tower of London until it got dark...very, very dark.
■ Caught a river Clipper all the way back to where we had begun and just managed to catch our train home - along with a mass of London commuters.
Apart from the grumpy scowling latter - it was a most fabulous day and honestly....I can't wait to go again.
Look out London - I have my eye on you.
ps. yes that is literally people clinging to the outside of The Shard.
