Have a Fabulous Weekend!

The Serpentine (also known as the Serpentine River) is a recreational lake in Hyde Park, London, England, UK.
Trafalgar Square, Central London, England, UK.
Big Ben (Clock Tower). Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, England, UK. 
One golden afternoon in London.

River Thames and Surroundings. The River Thames flows through southern England.

What are you up to this weekend? I'm going to stay indoors; after a pretty hectic week I just want to crawl on to my couch, drink a glass of red wine, and read my favourite book (When Nietzsche Wept, by Irvin Yalom).

Have a lovely weekend (and a very happy Mother's Day)! xx

I feel like doing the same too - stay in my bed and watch travel shows or food channel this weekend. The past days were tiring. Need to recharge. :)

Happy weekend. I love your photographs.

I will reap the garden, I'll go for a walk along the coast, I read a book and I'll play with my family and my dog.
A hug and good weekend.

That sounds like a good plan for the weekend - I may just copy you.
Enjoy!!!

Kelly said...

Sounds like you have a good plan for your weekend. Should be rainy and dreary here, so I doubt I do much. That's okay...I'm sure it will still be relaxing. Sunday is our Mother's Day and all my kiddos are coming to have lunch with me.

I visited London many years ago, and have always treasured my days in the city. Thanks for the memories.

Craver Vii said...

Staying inside with a nice glass of red wine isn't a half-bad idea. Sweet or dry, what's your preference?

Denise said...

What a great series of shots from London. It's a wonderful city and one I hope to revisit again one day, and do all the touristy things that I missed when I actually lived 200 miles away.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi There, I'm trying to catch up after being gone for a week. Hope you had a nice, calm weekend, Betty.... We are GLAD to be home although it was a great vacation.

I have always wanted to visit Trafalgar Square --and also to see Big Ben. I have read about them all of my life.

Hugs,
Betsy
