An Afternoon in the Sun

| July 10, 2013

Hubby and I enjoyed a couple of hours in the sun yesterday afternoon whilst Nanny and Imogen read books, played with Play Doh and splashed in the paddling pool.

We walked along West India Quay in London and viewed the old spice warehouses near Canary Wharf. These beautiful buildings have been turned into apartments, restaurants and the Docklands Museum.

A pot of tea was refreshing in the hot weather as we sat under a large tree at Browns.

The Eton Mess we shared was delicious.

The high rise office buildings in Canary Wharf sparkled in the sun.
