London.

 

 

As I said last week, we were going to London, me and my teenage granddaughters. We had a wonderful time, did a lot of shopping and went on a double decker bus to see the sights. The weather was beautiful, a bit (very) hot but who cares. Blue skies every day.

We only came back this morning but I already have some photos to show of beautiful London. I made over three hundred so it will take some time to sort them all out.

Beautiful photos of London! It seems the bus took you where you could get excellent views of the landmarks. How fun to take your granddaughters shopping there! I also enjoyed your posts on Markan. It's a beautiful town. I wish you a lovely weekend. Pamela

Even while you were out enjoying the sights of London, you thought of Friday's Fences. You do an excellent job with your camera.

Fijn dat jullie het zo naar jullie zin hebben gehad Riet! Prachtige foto's en mooi weer! Ik zou zo in het vliegtuig willen stappen en af en af willen reizen :-)

Fijne dag!

ladyfi said...

Marvellous shots!

klaproos said...

druk en heet zie ik wel lieve riet:-)

afanja said...

Mooie serie, Riet, jullie hebben er heel wat gezien.
Het was misschien wat aan de warme kant, maar je had het wel veel minder kunnen treffen met het Londense weer.
Maak er een mooi weekend van met veel nagenieten!

Beautiful shots of the city!

Tanya Breese said...

what beautiful photos of your trip. i bet you and your girls enjoyed yourselves and made life long memories!

Ruth Kelly said...

What lovely memories your photos give me of London. It is an amazing place.

Home and Lifestyle said...

Je foto's halen meteen herinneringen op, wij waren hier vorig jaar in mei. We doken er toen af en toe de metro in om op te warmen, niet logisch voor die periode van het jaar maar het was er toen erg koud. Jullie hebben juist warme dagen gehad, leuk dat jullie zo genoten hebben.

We zijn momenteel in een zeer warm NY, 38 graden is het hier. Mijn dochters hebben Victoria's Secret hier ook al ontdekt ;-) en al aankopen gedaan. Heb hen nog even herinnerd aan je tips, maar ze konden zich toch niet weerhouden van een aankoop ;-).

Lieve groet, Ingrid

Thanks for the memories! The first thing we did when we got to London was to take the sightseeing tour to get "the lay of the land". This post reminded me of that tour (but your pictures are better).
