London 2012 - South Bank Sights and Sounds

 

After almost 4 wonderful hours in the Tate Modern we needed some food and fresh air, so we had lunch at Giraffe (fish and chips and a fantastic dry white spanish wine) and then took in the sights and sounds of the south bank. I have always loved carnival rides and ferris wheels and that sort of thing (we used to call them merry-go-rounds), and from riding a dinky little wheel at the Waterfront, about 25 years ago, to going round in the Singapore Flyer with Laura and the Russian Chick, the London Eye has fascinated me - expect to see quite a few shots! In any event, it was a great afternoon out, leading into another great night out in London.
