Buckingham Palace Road

I spent Friday night at JooJoo's in Balham, she made a lovely supper that was reduced to a crisp by the time I managed to get Erbie asleep in new surroundings, with no blackout curtain and forgotten rabbit. The Pimms and girl company however was a salve in a week of tension. I stayed over and left early Saturday morning, there is a great overground service from Balham to central London. I arrived to a deserted Victoria and decided to walk home. The Queen was still asleep, the geese in St. James Park were still asleep as were the homeless people alongside them, no traffic, no noise, London in the morning is divine.







These pictures were all taken on my mobile phone, so apologies for quality.

A goose woke up and honked at us, which made Erbie cry!

I love London early in the morning, I don't see it very often, but when I do it's a pleasure!
