Just returned from a short, late concert at the South Bank (above). It was a masterclass with Martin Feinstein on the flute and Robin Bigwood on the harpsichord, doing Bach's Sonata in B Minor. It was very good.
On the way back we admired the fine view from the footpath across Hungerford Bridge (below). The views from Hungerford Bridge and Waterloo Bridge must be among the best in London.
The pointy thing like a red church steeple towards the left of the picture is in fact a pop up hotel, with just one room, built like a ship, with commanding views of the river. The "spire" is in fact the mast, with rigging up to the top.
What a fantastic place to stay! no wonder it's booked solid. There were people out on the "deck" surveying the scene with drinks, but you can't see them in the photo.
On the train we sat opposite this peaceful trio, the guy consulting his phone while his lady friends sleep, one on each shoulder.
And now I have to sort out S's sandwiches. We're going to the International Festival of Railway Modelling tomorrow, at Alexandra Palace. It looks as if I will have to pick the blackcurrants out before I wrap them up, because I sure don't want him doing it tomorrow lunchtime at the festival - I can just imagine the stickiness.
Sigh, I could do without picking blackcurrants out of sandwiches tonight. So I'd better finish posting this blog and go and do it. By the way, I will be pretty busy for the next little while. I hope it will be interesting but I may not have time to visit everyone's blogs for a week or so, though I should be able to post at least once in that time.
