I am a woman of very simple needs – except when it comes to my tipple of choice. I confess that I have a bit of a weakness for bubbles, of the champagne variety. So when Mr Chic told me that for our second day in London we would be having lunch next to the Thames and soaking up some bubbles I imagined this:
That’s actually Ramsgate in the background, but you get the picture? What he delivered was this:
Seriously, are they not the most amazingly beautiful creations? I could have stood and watched for hours. The children were running around, screaming with excitement, trying to pop as many bubbles as they could. And I might have popped a few myself (OK more than a few, but why should the kids have all the fun?).
After forever blowing (or popping) bubbles, we decided to explore the lunch options near the Globe Theatre. This sign tempted us into one pub, but the menu (unlike their humour) wasn’t really to our taste.
We lingered for a few hours, and sampled a few ales before meandering our way back to our hotel through the cobbled streets whilst the street musicians rocked the hell out of Mozart.
Before chilling for the evening in our hotel room and quaffing the right kind of bubbles, we stopped off at a little patisserie. It would seem by the speed at which I’m moving around the cake counter in the pic below, I really wanted cake!
I had the most delicious strawberry tart which melted in my mouth. Apparently it was too good to photograph. What can I say, sometimes a girl’s gotta eat cake 🙂
I hope you enjoyed our last day in London. You can find out in this London post what I got up to for our first day.
