under glass, or perspex, of the London Eye.
The view through the roof of our gondola.
Floral Friday Challenge.
Facebook has been inundating me with memories
of our travels last year.
So I decided to post some previously
unpublished shots of
St James Park
with the longish, narrow leaves,
below the blue/purple flower and
above the daisy type flowers.
I spent many hours digging great clumps of this
out of the ground in my youth as it
was a big ugly bushy weed.
And here it is in St James Park only
a few hundred metres from Buckingham Palace.
Nice clean shoes.
This one was impatient to finish his hour on the job.
Maybe he was getting sick of tourists getting in his face.
I think my first photo will…
indicated which country…
and city we are in this week.
I have been wanting to use this image for a while.
Over $AUD3.00 to sit down for an hour!?
And yet there must have been 50 or more
deck chairs just waiting for a sitter.
Or maybe the empty ones belong to those Londoners
who purchased a Season Ticket for just under $AUD180.00.
Bright red London bicycles.
And finally the London Eye, just on dusk.
Black and White Challenge:
We stopped in at the Troia Cafe Bar Restaurant,
in Lambeth Road London for a light snack
prior to our London Eye experience.
We did not realise Troia served mainly Middle Eastern cuisine.
We just liked the look of the place.
And there was something which catered for our hunger on the menu.
However, the decor took our eye.
Beautiful, colourful lamps hanging from the ceiling
created a second to none ambience.
Troia Cafe Bar Restaurant will be remembered,
for all the right reasons.
Good food, friendly staff and great decor.
Totally opposite to our farewell dinner
the previous evening, in Paris.
