The Shard was where we booked in to spend the first night and as the room was not ready we left our luggage with the Concierge and went to the Restaurant for some breakfast. This was the view we looked out on.
From the staff recommendation they suggested we take a visit to the Borough Market which is down the road - you can see the top of the Shard in the background
What a wonderful place to go and have a look around, the fruit, vegetables, sweets and produce looked so fresh and how lucky to be able to do your weekly shop here.
|Freshly baked bread, yum!|
|For those with a sweet tooth|
Buying some fresh fruit there, we walked across the London Bridge and stopped in at a little pub for lunch at the Barrowboy and Banker.
Now it is with sadness when we think what happened three weeks later at this place, when we heard on the news of the disaster, terror and tragedy that occurred there.
It brings tears to your eyes, all that is going on around the world.
Life and travel has changed so much
Our room was on the 43rd floor and having a room with this view was very special.
thank you for the welcome home notes, I really appreciate your kindness and friendship.
I am getting over jet lag and lack and lack of sleep. With the different time zone for the first week we were waking up at 3 or 4 am which can leave you tired for the next day.
Looking forward to coming over to say hello.
Have a happy weekend
