A Grand Day Out!

Yesterday we went up to London by train, to meet some of D's work friends for a picnic. They had decided to meet up in Hyde Park, at the Princess of Wales Memorial garden. The weather forecast was sunshine at first, but when we checked it later, they said it would rain!! In the end, we were very lucky with the weather and only had cloud, then sunshine. It was a lovely day.
The people we met are lovely. A chap called Gurav and his wife, Anshu, with their 20-month-old baby daughter and a lady called Asia (pronounced As-y-a).  A couple of others were expected, but Toby was training for a go-karting competition (!) and Ann's baby was not very well, so there were just the seven of us.  We had a lot of stuff to eat and a few things to play with - including the baby's stacking cup set and J's guitar.
All in all, we had a lovely afternoon and it was worth the 3-hours by bus and train (and foot!) to get there.

A lovely day for a picnic!

View across Hyde Park - the Serpentine, trees, buildings - spot the London Eye!

Our own personal entertainment... he carried this all the way to London on his back.
