Sunday Sunshine

It's been a glorious day (so far) and we were keen to take advantage of it.
We decided to go to Strand on the Green, which sits right on the north banks of the River Thames and is very beautiful (and very expensive).
We walked between two bridges, north side out and south side back.  The river was reasonably high and running very quickly.
 Local residents live with flood defences in place all year round.
We finished off with brunch at a riverside cafe ...
... and the good fortune to bump into the grandparents of The Boy Child's best friend. They treat The Boy Child like another grandson.
It's what Sundays in the sunshine are made for.

It certainly is! Isn't it lovely to have a calm, dry, sunny day after the last few weeks?

What beautiful photos - from the broad expanse of the water, to the little details along the way

Lovely photos - so nice to see the Thames and the sky looking blue! Lots of sunshine between the BF's grandparents and your own little one, I see :).

Fantastic photos, Ruth! It's so lovely to see photos of London with the sun shining. I'm so glad you had such a lovely day.
