Trafalgar Square - London

One evening Leesa had a ticket for the theatre in The Strand, so I went with her, found where she had to go, we had a little walk around together before her show started and then we split up. I thought I would go for a walk starting off in Trafalgar Square......

More to follow soon!

Wildlife, Gardens and Walks.......

Leesa had been over to Hyde park before I arrived and loved it. It is brilliant for walking, jogging or even swimming! Or you can just go for breakfast in the Lido. It is an amazing place and so friendly. I got up at 6.30am to go for a walk and breakfast, as it was highly recommended by Leesa!

Mine was the Granola and Cafe!

London - Leesa and I...

A few weeks ago Leesa came over to London for a few days and I joined her for two days. We had great fun! The hotel that Leesa chose to stay in was in a great location, close to Hyde Park and to the underground, also good restaurants nearby.

I met Leesa at the hotel, and then we went for a meal, in an Indian restaurant Leesa had seen before my arrival. We were the only ones in there!!

We had two days to fit in all that we wanted to do, before our other friend Barbara came over on the Saturday, when we were all going to make our way to my house until the Monday.
