For the first Scavenger Hunt of 2016 we may post twelve photos of our choice.
Mine are of a recent day out in London with my aunt to celebrate her 65th birthday and retirement from nursing, a career than spanned over 40 years..... I'm afraid there are a few more than twelve photos!.
We arrived into London at Charing Cross station so it was just a short walk to Trafalgar Square
where we watched all manner of street artists and buskers.
Next was St. Martin in the Fields where we enjoyed a free lunchtime concert by two renowned harpists.
The beautiful vaulted ceilings provided the most wonderful acoustics.
Afterwards we visited their Café in the Crypt for a quick cuppa.
A wander around Covent Garden followed.
Then down to the Embankment
..... some daftness in a phone box
and across the river.
I'd lined up a special treat at 5pm so it was back across the Thames to
where we enjoyed the most delicious afternoon tea in resplendent surroundings.
I wondered if perhaps it would be the height of vulgarity to take photos at this rather grand hotel but the waiting staff offered to take several snaps for us and others dining were doing selfies, so I went for it.
A visit to the ladies loo before we left was a must...
where the decor was just as amazing.
We had a fantastic day in London, I will never forget the luxurious surroundings of the Savoy and the
exceptional service we enjoyed, or of course the delicate flavours of all the scrumptious sandwiches, scones and pastries we stuffed...or the Roederer champagne in exquisite flutes!
Oh well, it's back down to earth and beans on toast for me.
Huge thanks to Greenthumb at Scavenger Hunt for continuing this challenge in 2016.
Do pop by to see her blog and all the other link ups and the list for February.
I'll leave you with a clip of the moving piece we so enjoyed at the concert.
Wishing you all a good week.
