The rain poured down on a Monday morning as Marlee took Abi & Ted to the Sea Life London Aquarium on the south bank of the River Thames. They gazed at sharks, sting rays, various fish and jellies too.
James and I worked at the noisy apartment while Harriet napped. The kids returned after lunch, excited from their morning out in the big city. The rain cleared a little so James and I headed over to Tate Modern on the south bank.
It was cold and dreary, perfect weather to head indoors and appreciate and appraise art from all over the world. We wandered the floors, giving our non artistic opinions on the weird and wonderful pieces. I especially enjoyed the Henry Wessel photo exhibition and these pieces;
Pablo Picasso – Nude, Green leaves and Bus. 1932
Niki de Saint Phalle – Shooting Picture. 1961
After hours of gazing, we caught a cab over the bridge and up to Soho for dinner. The rain poured down as night fell and almost every eatery was packed to the brim with people trying to warm their bodies.
We spent our 2nd last night in London sipping cocktails while James and I pondered on our European leg of the adventure coming to an end. All the amazing experiences we shared and the friendly people we met. The sunshine, the art, the museums, birthdays and laughter. After drinks, we headed back to the apartment to pack suitcases and plan for our last day in London.
