in London (really? rain? in London?), we had an absolutely extraordinary day. We ventured out
down the street
saw a few of the legendary double decker buses and met up with our friends Elanor and Lex. Elanor is a teddy bear artist too (imagine that!) so you might have seen her mentioned here before. You can check out her work here or here.
They took us to a Turkish Opera House for lunch called . . . uh . . . I’m not exactly sure how to pronounce it so it’s best if you just look at the photo of the sign below.
The interior was magical and intriguing. Here are a couple or three photos.
The food was delicious, but the company was better.
Afterwards, we walked to several places including this one, Liberty of London.
It’s been ages since I was last there and did not remember half of it.
We weren’t the only ones walking around in the rain – not by a long shot.
Lastly, I would be remiss in my duties if I did not include this photo of Elanor and me getting ready to walk down Bear Street.
Tomorrow is Hugglets where it will seem more like a bear street than Bear Street. I suppose I should get my act together and give the bears my “be on your best behavior” speech. When they all fall over laughing, I’ll know I’ve done my job.
