Summer Holiday Days 10 - 12

 Day 10: A train to Liverpool Station then the tube to St. Pancras. There was a small street photography exhibition there. But mostly I loved the statues by Paul Day and the poetry of John Betjeman and the beauty and history of St. Pancras Station.

After St. Pancras we spent a few lovely hours in the British Library followed by a picnic lunch in the courtyard of the library

Traveled on to Waterloo Station. Visited the Silverprint photo shop. Then the south bank of the Thames.  Had tea near the Royal Festival Hall.  Then crossed Hungerford Bridge and walked to 84 Charing Cross Road, stopping to shop for Derwent art supplies near Trafalgar Square. Back to Paul's flat via tube and bus.

 Day 11:  No pictures of this day yet because they were film that hasn't been processed yet. Bus to Waltham Cross to shop at Sainsbury.  Tea and muffin in the store cafe.  Saw Eleanor's Cross then walked to Waltham Abbey: saw the lock, the church at Waltham Abby where Harold's Tomb is located as well as the ruins of the Abbey.  Tea and scones at Philpotts with a stop later at the Welsh Harp.  Walked back to Waltham's Cross - bus to Enfield with a stop at the Coop. (Pictures to follow later I hope!)

Day 12: Returned to Central London to cross the Wobbly bridge to the Tate Modern.  Viewed the Diane Arbus exhibit.  Then to the Royal Academy and the National Gallery.  Exciting, inspring art...
