The following day, DD took us to the Borough Market which was one of my favorite locations the last time we visited DD in London. On this day, we sipped a special coffee, bought some special cheese and ate oysters on the half shell. During our stay, we went three times to this market!
The line to the coffee was extra long. I took this photo of DH and DD; but, what I also wanted to capture were the quilting patterns in the arches behind them!
Can't you just see the quilting patterns on the front of the market building??
This was the fish vendor stall. There was such a wonderful variety available.
This is the worker preparing our oysters. He was so fast with getting these ready.
Then we met a couple of DD's friends at The Goring and had high tea. My what an experience that was!!! The Goring is where Kate Middleton housed her wedding party before her marriage to Andrew. It was so cool to be able to be in a place that has been so celebrated over the years. It was also cool to see a grandmother celebrating her birthday with her daughter and granddaughter.
I enjoyed listening to DD's friends talk about their lives. What interesting people they are!! They both speak fluent Chinese and both lived/worked in Beijing. I went to China in 2009, it was a wonderful trip. They also speak fluent French. I keep trying to learn French; it isn't easy. I can't imagine being able to converse in so many languages!
Tower bridge in the background is a beautiful bridge. Check back next week for the final installment of our trip.
