Merry Christmas only 3 sleeps!

Alaska  2012 photo taken  by Mark Reid

These photos were taken by my son Mark when he was on his honeymoon in Alaska in January 2012. I though it was a lovely photo to post with Christmas only days away.

Les Miserables London

China Town and Theatre

Go to see
by Victor Hugo
 if you get the chance it is a good show that most people
will enjoy. The theatre was packed when we went and although I only paid £21 per seat in the upper circle we had a good view. I bought our tickets from the theatre box office.  With
China Town on the doorstep of the Queens Theatre London at 51 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, W1D 6BA. you will spoilt for places to eat great food.

Busy colourful China Town

Once again I had taken advantage of booking months in advance to stay at the Travelodge in Covent Garden. A twin room cost £59 on Thursday 6th December. Not bad considering we were minutes away from the westend.

Christmas at Covent Garden

Covent Garden at 10 am

 It was lovely to wander through Covent Garden recently as the stallholders perpared for the day. The Christmas decorations are lovely and as the crowds had not yet decended on the market it was easy to get some photos.
