Not quite the trek I had hoped for...

Well this morning I headed off on what I thought would be a 18 km walk but turned into about half that...maybe a bit more as I walked for three foot started hurting too much so I gave up. Disappointing but oh well...I did enjoy the part of the walk I did do and I will finish the rest on Wednesday. I started off at Earls Court tube station and walked through Chelsea in areas I had never been before then walked along the banks of the Thames until the Houses of Parliament then onto St. James Park. I stopped there so I will start there and go through three parks and back to Earls Court - am looking forward to it.

Time is marching on and I am trying to get things done before I leave on Sunday....

Very mild today but also very dull - it was getting dark by 3 p.m. I kept trying to get London's red busses in my photos to add a bit of colour!

Thursday if all works out I will be heading down to Brighton for the day to hang out with my friend Judi. We will meet at the train station and have lunch and do some shopping. I can't wait!

I won't even say what I have planned for tomorrow as plans have a habit of being changed...what I do know is I will be going to the Nutcracker in the evening. A bit concerned as Simon's wife went to this production and didn't like it. It is an alternate version - same music but presented differently....makes me wish I hadn't cheaped out and gone for the Royal Opera House production again. Stay tuned!
