Adventures with Euphro

(viewed 780 times)
Finally meeting Euphro was one of my favourite moments of the tour. His Irish accent charmed me because it sounds like home, like Newfoundland. His photography infection is as bad as mine, and that is bad. It made for a wonderful time. Sadly my photos do not reflect the excellence of the moment.

I had my first and only cheese and pickle sandwich (pretty good actually) in the Best Tearoom in the UK, which just happens to be in Ely. I have never seen so many teas on offer. I had a chocolate tea and it was really good.

the most expensive rock

(viewed 2969 times)
I went to one of my favourite parks, in the centre of the city, in Yorkville. The park has a large rock from the Canadian Shield, the rock mass which is mostly what makes up Canada..help me here, Euphro...this rock was taken apart and shipped to downtown toronto and cemented back together. It is much loved. Every kid who passes it has to run up and down it. It is a good place to just sit. Then my camera and I went out for dinner.

Can I say I am disappointed that I am not blogging from a tornado? No tornado, but the storm was pretty damn good.

Along the Thames

(viewed 1049 times)
I had to ask what the building was because everyone is just supposed to know it's the London City Hall. Canadians built in Canary Wharf, have to look it up. Last photo is the guys relaxing after a hard day.

There is a lot of relaxing going on along the Thames after work. I was stunned to see so many people in their work clothes having a beer. So many suits and high heels. I guess it is a better choice than getting on the rush hour tube.

my eye, the birches in front of the tate, and does ms moneypenny work in that building in the bottom photo? There are a lot more photos of London, but I had to ask myself, has this been blogged already?
