I am going to begin the end tale by ramping up slowly for you, as the day itself began quite slowly. Well, it did for me. Himself was off on his Conference and out the door early again. I woke up, and lolled for a while. Met the new boyfriend of the Hostess. Did some knitting … It’s me. I’m exciting.
But as the morning warmed up and the sun shone down upon us, we took action and headed for the Regents Park with some pieces of bread in a plastic bag. We were on a mission.
A thoroughly successful one if I do say so myself!
It really was a beautiful day in London. I knew we’d been blessed with beautiful weather while we were there (not a single use of the umbrellas we’d brought with us for typical London weather!).
We made the most of this by wandering aimlessly and just taking in everything that we saw.
Now, I’d given up on actually being able to have a Devonshire Tea while in London for a number of reasons. Mainly because I’d left it too late to find one that wasn’t going to cost me a fortune. (High Teas abound – at a price).
But as we wandered, and got hungry, we spied a café on the park map, and headed in that general direction.
You’ll never guess what they had on display in the window …
Now the scone may have been stale, the jam may have been mass produced, and the cream … well …
… the less said about that the better!
But I had a scone. And I was happy. You know what made this excursion even better? We were on the edge of the Rose Garden.
So we frolicked, while stopping to smell the roses.
But there wasn’t time to stop, yet again there was an agenda which had to be adhered to.
Just one more sight to see from Our Grand London Adventure! See you tomorrow as the Adventure comes to it’s Grand Climax!
