Grand day out - condensed

To London with friend* yesterday, by train. Weather variable.



We went here.


And here.


To see this.



And meet them.


And then home.



There was more, of course - Tubes, walking, serious camera shopping, espressos, muddled meeting-up directions, missed opportunities for shared lunch, running out of time, and painful farewells.



But this was enough.

Goodbye, Lovely Son! Until next time....

I love the Imperial War Museum (is it alright to love a War Museum??). So much to see, fascinating shows, great exhibits, lovely building. I go once every couple of years and next time will be taking Richard!

Glad you had a Grand Day Out.

Such sweet sorrow indeed. Know that moment so well. But you made it, you met up. Now I'm feeling ever so slightly sad as I imagine the train pulling away....but shan't labour the point.

Admire Don McCullen's work very much - think it made an impression on me at an early age.

How lucky you are to live where you can take a fast train to a major city for a fun day. Here in the USA, we have to drive our cars...with all the resulting issues.

Love your posts, and the photos are breathtaking!

What a great meet-up, and the way they look at each other... Ahhh.

Great day! There's something about even just looking at train stations that make my feet tired...

Can't think of what to say, just wanted you to know I had read and recognised that feeling, those feelings.

Exciting to meet, sad to part but overall a good day, by the look of your photos.
