London Calling

A few short hours spent in London with my sister last week. It's not a sentence I was sure I would ever write as it's been more than nine years since I last saw her. Oversharing personal stuff is not what I do save to say real life can be complicated [this was down to issues not related to me]. Her personal circumstances have recently changed and she is in a different place. It was good to see her and we talked non stop. Striking out from Victoria Station we had a picnic in Lower Grosvenor Gardens [where the shell follies are located] and then had a good nose around Belgravia or the place for the haves and have yachts as somebody recently called it👿 I'm not putting up any explanations....I simply wanted to capture a few memories.

    1. They were a gift to us from France and are actually used by the gardeners to store their tools!

    1. The follies are rather beautiful aren't they if not a little incongruous with the traffic on all sides surrounding them!
