Breakfast in Piccadilly, Royal Academy and Picnic in the Park 14th July

15 Jul

1. We saw the Greatest Rock and Roll Band In The World ( The Rolling Stones!) in Hyde Park yesterday, stayed overnight in a hotel in Covent Garden and had breakfast in a lovely cafe on Piccadilly as we watched the 10K run go by.


2. From there we went to see The Summer Exhibition at The Royal Academy, a real treat. I loved this ‘Enebriated Owl’.



3. KJ met us at the station and took us to meet the family for a picnic in the park. What a beautiful day!

    That breakfast looks delicious, especially the eggs! I bet the Rolling Stones were fantastic to watch and an afternoon picnic in the park… what better way is there to wind up the perfect day! 🙂

      Wow! I’m actually amazed to see my comment appear! I have been having so much trouble lately… every time I try and post a comment it just disappears! Oh the relief of seeing it here, you would not believe! 😀

    It looks like you enjoyed a marvelous sunny day. Good for you. I also like the owl. The art looks interesting from what I can see in the enlarged photo.

    Breakfast is so important. Last week, we stayed at a B&B in the mountains of Alberta, CA, for 5 days. Each day started with a different and delicious breakfast. We always enjoy those meals. Fun to see what combinations others serve. Our lunches are usually hearty, too. Dinner might be crackers, cheese, wine…all things on the lighter side.

    I hope you enjoyed the Stones.

    Your breakfast photo is making me hungry! My mother grew up in a small hamlet called Picadilly over here in Canada. We like to borrow your place names.. I live just a few miles from a little village called Bath, too.

    Love the Summer Exhibition. Whenever we visit our sons in Summer we make a point of going. We were unable to do it this year. I’m sure you enjoyed it.

    Oh Sally – what a lovely expedition.. the thing I envied you most was the Royal Academy.. lovely shot of those lovely galleries…Back in the sixties I went to opening day, and my abiding memory is none of the pictures, but the fascinating gypsy figure in flowing robes of Dorelia, Augustus John’s wife …
