You might remember last August our eldest daughter moved to London for her Bar course. Well she passed with flying colours and will soon be "called to the Bar" which is great news. As it's her birthday too, hubby and I went for a visit yesterday to take her out for lunch and bring back some of her books and stuff.
This is the view of Greenland dock and the Shard from her flat.
Lots of boats in the docks
And a floating pub, the Wibbley Wobbley!
There's a sailing school at one end of the dock. It was good weather for it!
We strolled along to Greenland Pier and hopped on the Thames Clipper to cross over to Canary Wharf
We saw "The Spirit of Chartwell" go past looking rather less "blingy" than she did for the Jubilee Pageant
Not sure about the meaning of this golden egg sculpture (a bit about it here ) but it does seem to fit in well with all the financial buildings behind!
Being a Sunday it was strangely quiet, but beneath all the offices there is a large busy area of shops and restaurants where we went in search of some lunch and had a wander.
It was good to visit London again. I always love seeing the river especially! but after spending an hour and a half crawling through the traffic to escape it was great to get home and smell the country air again!
