Cherries, Jam Doughnut and Another Simple Supper

1   Bought these cherries from the local greengrocer. Aren’t they beautiful?

Beautiful bowl of cherries

2   Couldn’t resist a jam doughnut from the local bakery! Can’t remember when I last had one. It was sooooo delicious!

Photo Journal of our London Days including A Wall of Poetry and The Book Maze

After a beautiful train journey (with no photos!) we had three delightful days in London with KJ and family. Lucy was there too for some of the time which was lovely.

First, Saturday, the long tube ride to Waterloo Station, then the walk to the South Bank along which we found a wall full of poems!  I so loved them, found them very moving and have chosen just a few to share with you.  Then there was the Building of the Ark, the Rainbow Park, and the Festival Hall and lunch from the amazing multi-cultural food market. Sunday afternoon in the park was yet another delight.
