    Roaring, or just tired? 🙂

    Let me know when you reach London!

  4. IsobelandCat says:

    As you should be!
    Best city i the world. And my home.
    Where are you going to be?

      Haven’t been to my apartment yet. But I think it is in Earls Court. Does that sound right? Sorry, I’ve never been to London so all of this is very new to me.

      Glad to hear that you love London! I have a feeling I’ll have a blast.

  5. IsobelandCat says:

    Known for its Australian residents. Handy for Kensington and the museums.

    London is big.

    Take it slow. Walk along by the river. Discover the South Bank. Join the Ramblers and explore the places outside London. Winter is a great time for walking in the countryside and having snug lunches in cosy pubs.
    Go to the Tower on a bright cold December day when everyone else is Christmas shopping and take a packed lunch, or at least a thermos, and spend the day there. Go beachcombing on the Thames foreshore when the tide is out. Stand on Waterloo Bridge and look at the river and listen to the Kinks on your -pod.
    Discover Radio 4.

      Great tips! I didn’t know you could go beach combing along the Thames. I’ll have to get some Kinks for my Ipod. Any suggestions for albums/songs? Snug lunches in cozy pubs sound so delightful. I really really can’t wait! I’ll look into the Ramblers. Thanks!

  6. Wow, love that image… that is beyond cool.

    That’s me!!! Leo the lion…my astrological sign. And yawning…my favorite past-time…sleep…if I could only get enough of it. 🙂

    Wow – I have just spent the day uploading photos from my trip in ’84 on to my computer. One of those thingies that transfers your negatives – nearly 600 of them. Now I just have to fix them up a bit – some doctoring to do and I might pop them up on the blog.

    Nice captured TBM! As usual, you’re great in photos of animals. You give me some inspirations, maybe in the near future I’ll try it. Thanks for sharing
