It is going to be a short blog today. Three days exploring the The Great War Battlefields with a brother who knows every detail of it, left me feeling somewhat exhausted so I had a bit of a rest day today – though you wouldn’t say it as I am Blogging past midnight!
My holidays are usually spent in some African Game Reserve but even in the city my eyes are always searching for wild-life. Today was the first really warm day I have experienced in London. The animals that inhabit Nicholas’s garden thought so too and I was privileged to spot a squirrel scampering about on the lawn before scurrying up a tree.
I only set off to London after 2 o’clock this afternoon, The Transport Museum in Covent Garden being my destination. The lift/elevator is a time machine and it takes you back to 1800
I spent a couple of hours in the past exploring this wonderful museum. Let the photographs do the talking.
The exhibits were superb and the explanations clear and concise. If ever you are in London The Transport Museum is a must.
Covent Garden is always an interesting place to visit with its pavement restaurants, markets and entertainment. I browsed around, bought some gifts and then went to meet Nicholas on the tube. He cooked a Tappas for dinner and then we went shopping at Tescos – at 11 o’clock at night – The shops stay open 24/7 in this place.
I know there is a fox in the garden and this evening he was kind enough to show himself. Foxes are not popular with people who share premises with them – do not stand in their droppings nor let your pet roll in it. The smell is impossible to remove.
