Caught the Eurostar from Paris to London this morning and have enjoyed our afternoon again wandering and reminiscing!  Beautiful hanging baskets of flowers everywhere here and not too many changes since we were last here together over 30 years ago!

The fruit stalls on Portabello Road markets were amazing .... Punnets of huge raspberries were delicious!   The food was amazing, the flowers gorgeous!  We loved "Nottingham Hill" the movie so had to visit the Travel Book Shop in Notting Hill and buy a book .... And sang "Ain't no sunshine" as we walked by the fruit carts!   Followed up with a pint at the Sherlock Holmes Pub in London, Trafalgar Square and a night at "Mamma Mia" the musical in Covent Garden which was fantastic!
