We had 2 good  daytime flights with a sleep in Hong Kong. This meant that we haven't been really jetlagged just a tiny bit tired! Yesterday we had a lovely day in sunny, warm London. We wandered down Oxford St looking at the shops and then spent time in my favourite shop, Liberty of London. It was as wonderful as I remembered. They were celebrating 140 years of trading and had a wonderful maypole made with liberty fabrics. We had lunch in the Liberty cafe (delicious soup and tea) and I enjoyed several hours of looking and a little shopping.

In the afternoon we headed to the Courtauld Gallery and enjoyed the wonderful paintings.

We had a lovely dinner at the local pub! 
Today we headed to Greenwich on the tube and the bus. We went to the Maritime Museum. 
We then headed back to the station and rode on the Emirates Air line.

We visited Bernondsey on the way too as Bruce's relatives way back had lived in this area. This church had been there when his relatives lived in the area.. 
We spent a fair time on the bus today travelling all over the place. Later in the afternoon we had some time at the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. There are amazing things in the V & A. 
We head to Harwich tomorrow to get on our ship so I won't be able to blog for a while. I will catch up when I can.
