May 24, Our leisure day

It goes without saying that they had no trouble at all finding things to do in London! Two of my guests and I enjoyed Harrods, the National Trust shop (where you can buy all kinds of things and help support them by doing so) Claridge's for a most delightful champagne Afternoon Tea http://www.claridges.co.uk/claridges/ If you get the chance to experience Tea here, I know you will enjoy it. The service is excellent with attention to detail ... a lovely way to de-stress your day! The hotel has a wonderful history. I hope you will read about it. Then it was off to the Royal Geographical Society to hear Christopher Lloyd and his head gardener Fergus Garrett speak on their latest book http://www.greatdixter.co.uk/succession.html which we now all have in our possession a signed copy. It was wonderful to listen to the two of them and Christopher certainly has not lost any of his humour and zest for gardening. The pictures of them both are rather dark, but you can still see them. It was put on by Gardens Illustrated Magazine, which is one of the best! On our way over we walked through Hyde Park and the rose garden plus there are some other shots there of things I happen to see as I went along.
