Flashback Friday, Moments in time, 15 July 2013, A day in London.

15 July 2013
We were well and truly settled into life in the United Kingdom. 
Life in our little village was easy and we were only a quick train ride from London. 
An Aussie friend I met in Shanghai was coming to England to visit family, 
did I have time to pop into London for a catch up? Did I ever! 
Love London, one of my favourite cities, any excuse to pop into the city!
We wandered around Covent Garden and the markets, drooled over some 
delicious food...nothing says summer in London like strawberries and cream! 
Well...maybe a Pimms, but was a little early for that!

We walked to Harrods and chose a few goodies from the amazing food court for lunch.

We walked to Hyde Park, soaking up all London has to offer on the way.
Who doesn't love a Vintage Red London Bus?

Watched some local kids having horse riding lessons in Hyde Park, 
what an opportunity for them!

Perfect place to spend a warm Summer day and catch up with a friend.

We parked ourselves on some deck chairs, ate our Harrods Take Away and shared 
a few glasses of bubbles...sadly out of plastic cups, not crystal flutes!

A great day reminiscing about Shanghai adventures and creating new memories,
 in one of our world's most amazing cities on a gorgeous Summer day.

  1. Too early for Pimms...!? Never! That picnic idea sounds brilliant, what a lovely way to enjoy some of the luxury of London as well as the great outdoors. Looks like you were lucky with the weather, too!
