A trip to London....to meet a friend.....from across the pond.

We arrived back from a week's holiday yesterday [more on that another day]......today I should have been washing.....and ironing......and shopping......and clearing up......but I wasn't......I was in London.....meeting a friend for the first time......she was in the UK from California for just one week......so I just couldn't miss the chance to get together with Rinda......who writes one of my favourite blogs......and produces such wonderful art.
We met at 10.15 at Charing Cross station.......and wandered down to the South Bank for a breakfast of pancakes, blueberries,bacon and maple syrup......not a breakfast I'd usually have.....but definately delicious. We chatted for over an hour while we ate......and then wandered along the South Bank taking in all the sights........and hustle and bustle.....as we chatted more....on our way to The Globe Theatre where Rinda and Paul had a booking to see a play at 1.00.......they were meant to meet at 12.30......but it was 12.50 by the time we got there.....and I think he might have been getting worried!! 
One of the photos needed for Rinda's photo scavenger hunt challenge........is graffiti art......so I couldn't resist taking this photo.
A truly enjoyable morning.......spent with such a delightful lady......I hope we can do it again sometime [maybe in California next time!!]
And last week saw me meeting up with another of my blogging friends as well.....but that's for another post.
Hope to catch up with you all soon.

Hi Jacky ~ I'm sifting through my google reader this morning attempting to catch up a bit, and just had to pop in and leave a comment on this post. It always makes me happy to see photos of my blog friends meeting up! I'm so excited for you and Rinda that you got to spend some face-to-face time together.

Fun fact: Carrie and I are making a trip to California next month, and we plan to meet up with Rinda while we're there. :o)

Becky said...

How great that you got to meet Rinda in real life! Glad you had such fun together :)

How lucky that you were able to meet up. Sounds like you had a good time together. Next time you have to go over to see her!
I did kind of notice that Rinda's blog posts seemed to be scheduled things and not her normal daily comments. Then kind of remember her mentioning a trip to the uk, now I put 2 + 2 together!

Oh how I love seeing this!!! It was so great to meet you. I really enjoyed our time together. Just back in the states - doing laundry, having a bit of go-round on the blogs and getting ready to face reality.
