  1. A great series of photos with lovely memories from England - but for me the best is still the harbor and the yachts. Thanks for sharing.

  12. The modern London (or Londonistan as many call it now) must have been a culture shock to you after the peace and quiet of MA.

  28. Again very beautiful pictures ! I have been in the Victoria and Albert museum years ago, when my son still lived in London.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Lovely photos. I loved the photo taken at Queens Park.

    Slowly,Simply and Sincerely is how one should live. But when we are younger we are always in a hurry and make more mistakes. We also miss out on so many wonderful things in life. However, a time comes in everyone's life to take things by the easy handle, relax, and take everything in ones stride. They result is peace of mind. This reminds me of the song = QUE SERA, QUE SERA = WHAT WILL BE WILL BE.

    Best wishes
