Last weekend we put the boat in a marina and headed down to London to go to a birthday party. We had the whole of Friday night and Saturday day time to play with and managed to fill every spare minute.
We did some sightseeing. The weather was brilliant so we were able to wander around happily without getting drenched or frozen. This was my first time seeing The Shard. We didn’t have time to take in the view from the top – definitely something I’d love to do in the future.
We went to Borough Market -one of my favourite London experiences. Luckily for the bank balance and much to Gordon’s relief we weren’t able to buy too much as we’d have had to keep it for a day and then cart it back to Doncaster on the coach.
We managed an evening of drinking and eating with Ian and Shona on Friday night. It was great to spend some time with them and have a proper catch up before the mayhem of the party on Saturday.
We ate at Pasha which was where we were staying for the weekend. It’s the first time any of us had tried Kazakh cuisine and we were all very impressed.
Finally we got to the point of the visit – Shona’s Birthday Party and a very good party it was too.
Thank you Shona and Ian for making our weekend so enjoyable!
