61/365 : Liberty

Leaves

Rather stealthily last weekend I popped over to London for a surprise 30th birthday party. It was such a wonderful weekend full of good food and the very best of company.  For extra special "surprise value" we all bumped into each other at Kings Cross and St Pancreas tube stop.  This meant lots of phone calls and text messages to ensure a good 'meeting spot'. If you don't know London, Kings Cross is literally heaving with people on a Saturday morning and trying to find anyone in the crowd even when you're both looking for each other can be challenging! But we found each other and ended up having a delicious lunch at the River Cafe before being really very lazy on Saturday and camping out in front of the TV with cheese, biscuits and a bottle of red wine.  And on Sunday... we went shopping.  My first visit to Liberty and it didn't disappoint!

Ooh, Clare, thanks for sharing! I miss London - I was last there in 1994. Hmm, for the moment, I'll just have to enjoy it vicariously through gorgeous photos such as yours! J x

I love all of these shots - I need to spend some time walking around my city and taking photos. I just don't want to do it alone.
