Monday, Tuesday.

 

 

Last week the  weather here has been hot, hotter, hottest. Too hot to blog and do anything really. Just try to keep calm and cool.

The pictures  I am showing today are made by my granddaughters while we were in London. Like me they made a lot but I just picked a few for today.

The Dominion Theatre was almost next to our hotel.

They were showing “We will rock you” the musical by Queen + Ben Elton.We didn’t have time to go see it. Would have loved to.

We did use the subway a lot. The best way to get around.

So many people spending their holidays there. Nice taxi.

Als ik al je heerlijke Londenposten zie krijg ik zin om ook weer eens te gaan. Wat een leuke stad is het toch, en wat gezellig samen met je kleindochters. Ze boffen maar met zo'n bereisde oma! Zonnige groetjes

Ziet er heel leuk uit! Londen is zo fijn (alleen een beetje duur helaas :( )

Hello Riet, wonderful photos from London! There seems to be so much there to do. I love the cute taxi! Thanks for sharing your visit, have a happy week!

I just spent 2 weeks in England and did not see London, your photos make me put it on my bucket list to do.

Brings back memories of years ago . . . We used the subway all the time too. I remembered feeling a bit skittish about it in the beginning . . . but the way to get around, for sure! Nice to see some of the granddaughters pics.

Jammer dat je niet naar "We will rock you" bent geweest. Ik was er in 2010, toen speelde hij al en het was geweldig. De sfeer in het theater was zo leuk, iedereen zong mee. De foto in de sidebar van je twee kleindochters met de hoeden op, is zo leuk, je kunt daar overal zo fijn winkelen en alles passen. Het was alleen wel erg druk in de winkels toen.

All of these are wonderful! I especially like the very last photo! And the taxi! Enjoy the week to come! Hope it cools off some!

Rajesh said...

Wonderful shots from London. Looks like you had a great time.

Lavender Cottage said...

Your granddaughters are pretty Riet, love the photo of them with the hats on. They took some good photos for you to share.

Pondside said...

That was great! I was just telling The Great Dane today that I'd love to visit London during the winter, just to see shows!

Home and Lifestyle said...

Erg leuk om weer foto's van Londen te zien, we bewaren er goede herinneringen aan. Leuk dat je kleindochter ook zo van fotograferen houdt!

Een lieve groet vanuit een regenachtig Orlando,

Hi, it is lovely in your part of the world because when your own place is a bit difficult for you, it is easy to go somewhere else, that is kinder in terms of conditions.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You had wonderful weather when you wee in London, Riet. The sky was so blue!

I hope your weather this week will be cooler!

Luna Miranda said...

i recognized the streets and landmarks of London. i spent a week in London a few years ago, and it was a memorable visit. great photos.

Marja Visscher said...

Dat ziet er voortreffelijk uit Riet. Leuk hoor, met je kleindochters op stap. Ik weet dat jij ook niet tegen die hitte kunt, was je daar terwijl het zo heet was? Dan was een schduwplekje in een van de parken geen verkeerde gedachten. Hoe is het met je man, heeft het blijvend geholpen?
Lieve groet, Marja

That little taxi is a bright little bubble in the street! I saw the stage show of "Rock You" in Melbourne and was utterly dazzled by it! It was great! Love the theatre where it is being done in London. Grand photos.

afanja said...

Mooie serie van Londense stadsgezichten weer.
We kunnen nu even een paar dagen bijkomen van de warmte, tegen het eind van de week lijken we opnieuw in de prijzen te vallen met tropische omstandigheden. Voor mij hoeft dat niet zo nodig, maar we zullen het ermee moeten doen.

SmilingSally said...

I like your blues. And, of course, I love London!

Happy Blue Monday, Riet.

I like the taxi with the flag colours on it.

It does look as though you've had a great visit to London and what wonderful blue skies!! Really enjoyed your photos for the day, Reit! Thanks for sharing the fun!!

Self Sagacity said...

Hello Riet, those are beautiful photos! Amazing how your photography has captured so much details.

Cynthia said...

The mystery building is the Admiralty Arch near Trafalgar Square. Love the colorful taxi!

EG CameraGirl said...

You made great choices, Riet! Such a nice way to show us a bit of London.

Gary said...

Great tour!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Jill Harrison said...

so much to see and o in London and so much history. Unfortunately we can't always do everything. We visited in 2005, so thankyou for this glimpse back. What a great statue on front of the theatre.
Have a wonderful week, and stay cool Riet. How hot does it get where you are in summer?

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

A great collection of photographs. You guys did well. Thank you for sharing.

How lovely to be able to travel with your granddaughters. Mine is only 3 months old and I am already 68 so I am not sure how much travel I will be able to do with her. I'm in Mumbai now for six months. Won't be back in San Francisco till early Dec, in time for her first Christmas.

My Ruby Tuesday is at:

I was afraid of the tube (subway) at first, but soon felt right at home -- it really is a great way to get around. Your granddaughters are good photographers too -- they inherit your talent!

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

Your grandaughters have got talent -- and a great teacher, I presume!

Juliëtte said...

Weer helemaal bijgelezen. We hebben een hele lange tijd geen internet gehad wegens blikseminslag na hevig onweer!
Tot gauw!!

Liefs, Juliëtte
