So many people have asked to see my photos from our New Year’s  Eve trip down to London, and so without more ado I’ve shared the best ones with you.  On my website is a video you might also like to watch that I’ve just uploaded to my new January newsletter.


On our way to the Strand Palace hotel for dinner.  On the left are queues of people waiting to run down to the Embankment when the barriers open.


Walking from The Strand to Tower Pier we saw The Shard all lit up.

Happy New Year!  Big Ben chimes twelve o’clock as the fireworks erupt from the London Eye.

A rather awesome photo of Tower Bridge lifted for the first time in 2016, HMS Belfast on the right, a full moon, and Jupiter just above it as a speck in the sky.
