The Shard

After our experience with Antony Gormley, we went across London for our appointments with Shard. Taking two lifts to get us to the observation deck at 801 feet. Being prepared, I had binoculars with me so we could enjoy the wonderful views of London. We enjoyed a glass of champagne, as you do and I partook of the virtual reality roller coaster which was pretty good.

The views were stunning. We were lucky that although it was cloudy they were high and didn’t disrupt our views at all.

We enjoyed a good couple of hours taking in the sights of the city before coming back down to earth.

From the base of the Shard we headed towards St Paul’s we had an evening meal booked in a restaurant near the cathedral. On our way there we passed through Borough Market. It was, to put it mildly, absolutely heaving. We had trouble navigating our way through, such was the crush. We had a stroll over the millennium bridge toward St Paul’s, where we spent a bit of time wandering round before heading off to dinner.

We said goodbye to Helen & Mark and set off for a pleasant stroll back to Waterloo for the train home. A lovely end to a wonderful day.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
