Good morning....
I had the most wonderful day yesterday.....
a walk along the Thames towards the Gherkin with Lillian and Dave (Whiterose) ....Dave knows all the cool places for photography....then we met Alex (AlexAppleby) for lunch....she is charming. Then Lillian took me for a delightful Champagne high tea in the afternoon. On our walk back to The London eye we saw a film crew filming two guys on Harleys. They stopped for a rest next to the Lion statues near Westminster and to my amazement it was Jensen Button the F1 racing driver....I just had to ask for a pic with him.....whew is he super sexy....cute as a button

V1 and 2... St Paul's
V3 and 4 ...myself and Jenson
V4 and 5 ...champagne and high tea

Out with Isabel (Chinga) today....and the sun is shiningGrinGrinGrin...

A superb set of well taken images each one worthy of its own upload, however it is image one that provided me with time to reflect.

Great set Colleen with V1 being the standout. Jenson Button comes from Frome in Somerset, where I had a pub for five years. Looks as if you had a great day
out, and by the look of the fizz and cakes spoilt rotten. And why not.
