We have not stopped this Summer! We took the caravan away to stay in Henley on Thames and had a great week there. The weather was pretty good for here in the UK - dry!
It was easy to catch the train from Henley on Thames to Paddington, London and we did just that for a couple of days during our stay to visit the capital. We walked through Hyde Park and had a little sit and watched the world pass by. We spotted Speaker's Corner and visited the July 7th Bombings memorial as we went by.
We then carried on up to Wellington's Arch and were lucky to see the guards passing by as we walked along there.
As we walked down The Mall we were able to get a sneak preview of Big Ben behind the trees and then passed Horse Guards Parade.
We carried on to visit Trafalgar Square and see Nelson's Column. Again, it was very busy around this area.
There was a lot of walking involved and it probably would have been easier for us to have hopped on and off the tube but we enjoy walking and were quite happy to do so. However, if you have young children or struggle with excessive walking I would definitely recommend using the public transport to get around.
We continued to walk down Whitehall, past Downing Street and then to the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey.
During our stay in Henley on Thames I had taken my blanket that I have been working on for my daughter and managed to complete the last round of squares. I have been busy joining these to the blanket now and threading in all the loose ends! Which seems to take forever! I do try and do this as I go but it still always seems time consuming. Definitely a job during TV viewing!
Bye for Now
