Back in the USA......

I arrived back in LA last night after an emotional farewell with Mark and Terri at Heathrow.....had the most amazing time with them in London....what an incredible city!!! The flight was long but uneventful (which is the way I like all my plane flights!) and I have settled in at a Hotel near the airport for a few days before heading home. Meeting a couple of blog friends over the next couple of days which I am very excited about! more on that next time!

Here are a couple of pics from the last few days in London......which included a visit to the Tower of London on Saturday.....











Skating rinks are springing up all over London....this one at the Tower....


So that...in a nutshell, was London....I will go thru my pics and post more when I get home.......we made some lovely memories over the eleven days I was there...unforgettable times. *sigh*

This morning I ventured out to visit Manhattan Beach.....beautiful weather for a beach visit and a walk on the Pier...which was decorated for Christmas with trees....











Well....almost dinner time here....just spoke to the lovely Annie who is coming to spend some time with me tomorrow....yay!!!!!

I am almost ready to go home now.....and back to work next Monday!!! Looking forward to seeing everyone again and catching up on what has been happening while I have been away.....Rose will probably ignore me and will pine for Margaret who has been house sitting for me.....and spoiling Rose rotten (deservedly of course!) and of course there is always the fun of planning the next trip......even if it never happens it will be fun to plan.....a girl has to have something to look forward to!

'til next time..............Lorraine

Love the outdoor skating rinks! I don't skate myself, but I love watching others glide around on the ice. Especially ice dancing.
