London Calling


 We walked around the streets of  Belgravia where we stayed for a week, and were able to admire all the grand and posh homes.
 characterised by grand terraces of white stone buildings that went right along the street



I love London from walking through the beautiful parks, seeing the old churches, and visiting a few of the museums. Getting around the City you had the choice of riding the large red double decked buses, the ubiquitous black taxi cabs...

or speeding to the  next destination via the underground.


We were fortunate to spend a week in London and loved every minute of our time there.


So much part of the streets, the iconic red pillar boxes stand as they did 160 years ago and a unique feature of Britain
I wish you a wonderful weekend
hugs
Carolyn

  1. It seems people either love it or hate it. Sure looks like a lovely place to visit. I've only had long layovers during summer vacations to the States but have never been able to explore the city. Perhaps one day I will. Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  10. It always fascinates me to see how others from elsewhere see places I know well ... what you point your camera at so often sheds a new light on the supposed familiar. Great pics!

  11. Dearest Carolyn,
    Oh certainly you enjoyed your week in London. It is already quite a while ago since Pieter and I spent time in London but we enjoyed the underground and exploring the city together. Pieter had been to summer college in London so he knew his way around.
    Sending you hugs and blessings for a lovely Sunday.

  17. Carolyn, It's so nice that you got to spend a week in London. I've always wondered what it would be like to visit. The parks must be so pretty this time of year. I've seen the red telephone booths, but never these red pilar boxes that go so far back in history. The homes look very charming also.


    by the way, the red rose that I showed today wasn't from my garden. It was from my church. There is a line of different roses in front, and the red ones are still blooming, so had to take a pic of it. : )

    Have a wonderful week ahead, Carolyn.

    So lovely to read your post here, and thank you for sharing your lovely photo's.
    I recently posted a letter in one of our lovely red post boxes ... they can come in different shapes and sizes depending where in the UK you live - but are so part of the way of life - it's brilliant!

    All the best Jan
