The Last of London
Oh my oh my, what a strange time we are having! We have just gotten over the sickness and now we are in the throws of preparation for the big family holiday feast!
I am decidedly behind on all bloggy business, but that is life no? First I want to say a big hello and thank you to all the new followers, you are simply lovely.
Next, I will finally finish up with my London photos as these last shots were from one of my favorite outings. Picture heavy and few words to follow.
On Sunday morning before my workshop I went on an adventure with The Lumberjack to Columbia Road Flower Market, and what a wonderful time we had!
Then there was this guy! Blaring reggae music and dancing, loved him! I will always think of him as Mr. Spicy!
After that The Lumberjack wanted to hire a bicycle as he was tired of all the walking. What walking I ask you? You have been riding in my pocket the whole time! When he realized his boots couldn't reach the pedals that was the end of it and we hoofed it to Spitalfields Market, where again I could have spent a heap. Still, I did find something nice for my mother.
Oh what a wonderful day! One of my favorites of the trip.
Well that wraps up London for now. Next week the final chapter in my travel saga, Paris! What a wild time that was!
Since the Thanksgiving Holiday is upon us in the States, I wish to say how thankful I am for all of you.
Until next time my friends - be safe, be well.

Happy Thanksgiving! That was a lovely final installment of Lola London. A Boris Bike, indeed! I noticed that most 'French' goodies in London were a lot bigger than the real thing here in France. But the giant meringues are true - they really can get as big as your head, here!
You've gotta' love London! (And the Lumberjack of course ;) )
Happy Thanksgiving :D

I'm leaving London after living here for 21 years in the new year and your post really sums up everything I love about this great city. Lovely post. xx
Such fun. Have a happy Thanksgiving. :)
Gorgeous photos, must get myself over to columbia road, it's been too long. Can't wait to see Paris!
I notice Mr Spicy has a fire extinguisher in case he gets TOO HOT! LOL
I think Mr Lumberjack would have hounded you for one of those nude pink bottomed kewpie dolls to keep him company!
It's like a treasure trove! :)
Sounds pretty wonderful! Not everyone gets a companion like the Lumberjack for traveling, either!
