Holiday Food


Victoria and I had Dinner in the Crypt Cafe, below St. Martin in The Field, before our concert.

If you go to London, don't miss it!

What I learned about Victoria on our trip:
She loves food!

This wonderful little take away shop sold sweets but more to Victoria's  liking…..you can choose your favorite cupcake to be made into a Milkshake.

We had to go back the next day for her to have another one.

 
Fish and Chips as you can only have in the UK.
And my favorite…Mushy Peas!


The scones are wonderful but what I am crazy about is the clotted cream  that is always served with them.
Yes, Tea again!!
(note the clotted cream)


My favorite beer (?) on this trip was Samuel Smith Extra Stout.
Not sure Stout is a beer but it was dark and I loved it.

What I Love  about the UK:
Clotted Cream!!!!

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!!

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!!
