RUBY DAY IN LONDON

Some times, when life seems just too bad, like what is happening in Japan these day, I simply have to turn my mind and eyes away from the marring horrors, and polish good memories. They are a part of life too!


Our second day in London bro Kel and I bought Oyester cards for the Subway and out we went, not to buy pizza though.

I prefer the Subway to the intricate forest paths in Norway.
Bro was looking for CD's and had old connections up in Notting Hill.



We didn't walk very long due lousy physical conditions for both of us.
The small colorful shops in Portobello Road are mostly for tourists.
This traveler sure had confidence in the Londoners.

Flowers and spring in London, while snow cowered most of Norway. We were thrilled.

Felisol, how lovely were your London photos. I've visited this city several times and loved it each time. So much history! How wonderful that you are spending time with your brother here.

Thank you for all your kind comments on Heart Choices. I am very thankful for your friendship.

Love,
Debbie

The pictures you took of London are lovely. Makes me wish I were there too ... such quaint shops! You really should consider compiling your photos into a book. It is a work of art.

I really like your photos..they tell a story. I could not help but smile at the open bag by the street. The owner has such confidence! have a good week and you're right, sometimes we need to focus on good things to handle the bad things like the Japan earthquake and tsunami. Thanks for reminding me that. have a good week!

Thanks for taking us along on this stroll through London. My old knees never let me stroll very long so it's nice being a virtual tourist with you from the comfort of my chair. :)
I love those colorful quaint storefronts.

Good times are a part of life as you said; but sadly so are the terrible times we have to accept as in Japan. My thoughts and prayers are with them as they endure the hard and sorrowful time they have been dealt.

Love your photos. I could imagine my cousins who live in London browsing those places too. Happy Monday!
