Last of London & Mail Art #109

This was the last card that I made while in London. It has lots of bits of memories on it and just looking at it now, makes me happy we had the chance to be in London again.

Here's a view from the top of the bus. We're were riding from Sarah & Peter's back to our Hotel by Waterloo Station. I loved riding on the top,  what a view.

Saturday, we had a really fabulous experience. We went to the wedding of Andy and Elena, my MailArt365 friends, at Fulham registry hall. We had to take the tube to a new area and find out way, which we did without a problem. We got to meet Andy and Elena's friends and family. I will tell you this, those are two beloved people. They were surrounded by warmth! The ceremony was quite lovely and was in a room that you knew was just so historic and British. It's the town council hall, I believe it's called that, but on Saturday's it's a wedding chapel. We were thrilled and delighted to be part of this celebration. Afterwards, we walked over to Aziz, a Mediterranean restaurant and had delicious food and amazing cake. Andy promised the cake would be amazing and it was.

Now, on to Istanbul. We had to get up VERY early to catch our flight out but I'd arranged for a van to get us and since it was Sunday morning, there was NO traffic and we made it to Heathrow with plenty of time to get a coffee.

Given the view of St Pauls and the fact that you were on the top deck of a London bus, I wonder if that was the number 11? It's a fabulous bus ride to take too!!!
