I love wandering around in London. Last Friday when the better half suggested a date night I jumped at the chance. I started off the night by stopping in the pub Ye Olde Watling to read some of the Charles Dickens’ novel that I am currently enjoying. I treated myself to a half pint of Guinness while waiting for my date to arrive. It was fun sitting in a pub that has so much history. The claim is that Sir Christopher Wren used old ships’ timbers to construct this pub. It dates back to 1668. Another claim is that during the construction of St. Paul’s Cathedral, the upstairs of the pub was utilized as a drawing office.
I am a little behind in my reading. I was hoping to be done with Nicholas Nickleby by the end of February. However, I am only 500 pages in, leaving over 200 more to go.
Once my date arrived, we headed towards St. Paul’s Cathedral.
There were remnants of Tent City outside of St. Paul’s. On the following Monday, during the night, the rest of the tents were removed.
We popped into the pub, The George, founded in 1723, to sample some brews.
Across the street from this pub is the Royal Courts of Justice
Fashion week was occurring at the Somerset House.
Then we walked by Trafalgar Square. It is beautiful at night.
We had a delightful night!
