A market, a river stroll and a visit to a book shop or two

Yesterday I was sore!  The walk along the Thames had worn me out and I am still recuperating.  I think if a snail and I had a race yesterday the snail would have won.  Of course that didn't stop me from walking - after all you can't really do much BUT walk here. I just took it as easy as I could sitting down whenever I saw an empty bench. 

I crawled onto a train heading to London Bridge as it was the first one along...hmmm...Borough Market is right across the street...for once I did not buy anything.  No worries...I will be back....










Then I walked along the river....



St Paul's Cathedral


 
Bubbles galore!!
 


Sand sculptures on "Thames beach"



Then I walked over Waterloo bridge to Covent Garden...a very crowded Covent Garden...midterm break is happening....kids everywhere!!!


Love tube station managers with a sense of humour and fun. 


St Martins in the Fields - my favourite church.  I like it becaused they are heavily involved in helping the unfortunate and homeless which to me is what churches should do.


A quick walk ...okay not quick...a slow stagger past Trafalgar Square - but I didn't stop. It was heaving with people.   I was on a quest to get a Berlitz guide to Malta....no joy at Stamfords but found one at the huge (five floors!) Waterstones at Piccadilly Circus...

I then took a bus to Baker St. and walked over to the beautiful Daunt books on Marylebone High St.


I then met my friend Irene for a meal at Pizza Express....and that was my day yesterday!!!
