Today was one of those days that will go down in memory. I treated hubby to a trip up the Shard which is the tallest building in Europe. I took loads of photos....including the area I lived in for the first 4 years, where I went to secondary school and where I volunteer as a theatre steward.
Here's one of the photos that looks along the Thames towards St. Paul's Cathedral.
It was a glorious summer's day and the view was fantastic. As it was so early in the morning, there is still a little haze in the sky and I was filming through glass so there is a bit of a reflection..
We then went for a walk along Bankside and took a closer look at a house that is just 2 doors away from the theatre where I volunteer. We were amazed to see that it was 500 years old and had been lived in by Christopher Wren who designed St. Paul's Cathedral and also by Catherine of Aragon who married Henry VIII. I have walked past this house many times and never realised the history behind it. It just goes to show that it pays to look around and explore.
Then, to top a perfect day, we got home in time to see all of Andy Murray's Wimbledon tennis match. It was a great match and HE WON.
