Daily Pics: Have Wooden Spoon Will Travel

by in Everyday Journeys

It’s true what they say about kids and their toys. Forget the expensive stuff. Bring on the wrapping paper, cardboard boxes and wooden spoons. Thankfully Aunty Ali had an abundance of spoons we could take with us on our walk along the Thames. We had a lovely day exploring the neighborhood, walking along little side streets and imagining how this part of London would have looked, felt and smelt (not great I suspect) a hundred years ago. One thing I love about London is that people take pride in preservation. From the grand buildings to the little delectable gastropubs, they are all refurbished so very tastefully.

So much history the Thames must have seen with every rise and fall of the tide

Scrumptious food. It was a toss up between the aged steak and soft shell crab brioche
