Back to England

How lovely to find myself back in my mother's birth place. It took me years and years to get here and now you can't keep me away. My friend Barb and I flew into London yesterday on British Air out of Canada. The Heathrow Express got us to Paddington Station and a taxi to our Bloomsbury Hotel. We are staying at the Grange White Hall just around the corner from the British Museum. We spent a few, sleepy, moments at the museum since we didn't want to go to bed early. After running into my niece, Connie, who's on vacation from the Peace Corp. We all came back to the hotel for dinner.

Today, we set out on a trek to buy Barbara a new suitcase since her's was damaged on the flight. Then we took the tube to St. Peter's to wander the grounds. We found an absolutely wonderful little tapas bar on the Thames for lunch and followed it by walking across the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern. At 4:30 we walked back across the bridge and went to a beautiful Evensong at the cathedral. Now we are back at the hotel after a pasta dinner at local Italian restaurant. Tomorrow we are going to St. Andrew's United Reformed Church in Brockley where the Gobledales are pastors. Ana and Tod have long ties with our Bellingham congregation since they were missionaries in Africa when their children were young.

One more day in London before we head for Stratford-Upon-Avon. Onward and upward!
