The rooms are beautiful!


The scones were delicious.

And the trays were made using William  Morris prints.

On Holiday - London Music


Candle light concert at St. Martin in the Field.


Choir singing at St. Pauls Cathedral during Church service.

And we happened upon the London Symphony Orchestra giving a free concert in Trafalgar Square when returning from…

 a free  Organ Recital at Westminster Abby.

Who could ask for anything more? It was all wonderful!

The music!

Victoria and Albert - Textiles 1


Baby Bonnet - circa 1575


My Victoria and I went to the Victoria and Albert Museum.
A purposeful destination for me.


The problem with displays in museums is:
They won't let you touch anything!!

The next two photos of are the Madonna and Child.

I love anything depicting a Mother and her Child.




What I love about London:

On Holiday - London

We had an express train from York to London.

No stops!

That's Big Ben in the background.  And the London Eye.
We saw the sights of London. Walking everywhere.




It was very busy at Buckingham Palace.  
They were having a Tea.

Ladies and Gentlemen dropped off in cabs and escorted into the palace.


If it was really, really far off (or our feet got tired) we took the Tube around town.

What I love about the UK:
Train Travel!!

On Holiday- Day Tripping

We took a Day Trip from York, UK to the old Whaling Town of Whitby.

I loved the winding streets and the view of the ocean.

I think every other Englishman had their dog with them out and about.
They were all so well behaved.


Sign in a shop window.

We drove through the moors on our way there.


And on our way back, we stopped in a little town to see the Train Station where a scene from the Harry Potter movie was filmed.  I think it was the first one. Not sure.
The scene where Hagrid meets Harry at the Train Station to take him to Hogwarts.
(or is he saying goodby??)


The gift shop was ready for Harry Potter fans.

And it was such a lovely countryside.

What I love about the UK:

"Dogs Welcome"
