The "Texans Tour of London" commences

London Marathon Training: Week 16 of 19
Tuesday target run: 16 x 30 seconds

Although the Texans are long gone, the sightseeing did not allow for the blog posting to keep pace...so a little homage over the next few days to the week's festivities.

Day one saw the arrival of J and JB in London; after a full English breakfast and a nap, our little foursome headed to central London for afternoon tea at Fortnum and Mason's. That's the thing about house guests...they get you out to see and do alot of the things you been meaning to see and do as London city dwellers.

Entrance to Fortnum and Mason's department store.

Don't let those little cakes and finger sandwiches fool you...they can be quite filling.

We even did a little pre and post b-day celebrating for the boys.

After afternoon tea, we wandered a bit in F&M's department store...quite lovely, especially the perfume counter.

Next stop: show #1 of the week: Billy Elliott. What a show...those little guys can sure dance!

And so, feeling quite energized by the day's events, we all concluded that the week was off to a rip-roaring start. Next day, we were headed to Hampton Court!
