We went to London last weekend to watch baseball, it was very warm so we didn’t do much else, but here are some highlights
We ate a tasty lunch at Natural Kitchen.
Our hotel was next to the Tower of London.
We had a nice breakfast on Sunday morning.
We went to Regent Street for a brief shopping trip and then headed back to the station and our train home, it was just too warm for anything else!
We went to London to watch baseball. Yes, baseball! A proper MLB game between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, in London.
We hoped it would be good but it exceeded all expectations as the atmosphere was as good as any baseball game we have been to in the US.
The London Series was being played at the 2012 Olympic Stadium.
The weather was rather warm, reaching 33 degrees, very similar weather to the day we went to Fenway Park in 2013.
We had plenty of time to walk around and see everything that was going on before the game started.
It was exciting to see how they had changed the stadium into a ballpark.
We had some appropriate refreshments, I especially enjoyed the baseball Krispy Kreme doughnut.
The build up to the game included lots of flags!
The first pitch was at 6.10pm.
The first innings lasted about an hour and featured 12 runs! 6 all, awesome start!
The game lasted about 5 hours and ended 17-13 to the Yankees. It was a very good game.
We recently went to London to do some shopping. Here are some pictures from our day out in Shoreditch.
A couple of weeks ago Amy and Zoë took me with them to London. We went to the Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibition at the British Library.
Zoë had made me a Gryffindor scarf to wear on our outing!
We had lunch at Dishoom, it was yummy, especially this Rose and Cardamom lassi.
We managed to fit in another Harry Potter stop with a trip to Kings Cross, here I am at Platform 9 3/4.
Last Christmas we were given gift vouchers to go up to the viewing platform at the top of The Shard. We finally got round to using them. It was really good!
It looks very tall from the ground!
This is the view to the south.
This is looking out toward the east.
This is sort of north east.
And finally looking towards the west.
This is looking straight down!
Pauly was very excited to be able to go and see Ride playing at Brixton Academy. He took me and Zoë with him.
We arrived a bit too early so went to Wahaca for dinner.
We had lots of food and cocktails! It was all so tasty, I really like Mexican food.
It was a really good night. Ride were their own support! They played a set first and then had a little break before playing their album ‘Nowhere’ in full. Pauly had a great night being back in the early 90s!
