Cold

Today was cold! It was sunny and beautiful though and I avoided working for the whole day until about 12 O'clock. We went to Deptford for breakfast in the trainy cafe in Deptford-very nice sausage sandwich with mustard and ketchup. Tasty Latte. One long table up the middle of the carriage with yellow and orangey rubbery plastic chandeliers all the way along. (better than I have made them sound!) The stools had black and white print and the plates had various black and white footwear on them. It was all lovely though nothing beats Gambardella's near where I live-will share that another time.
Trainy cafe-same picture as before I'm afraid-didn't take any today.
Nipped to Greenwich but didn't buy anything. Before I came home and buckled down to writing reports, I took a photo of one of my favourite views in Greenwich. I have not quite got it as I wanted to, as I see it from the middle of the road as I am driving and I couldn't stand there as there were cars coming. Also someone had their car boot up in my way!

I love the way the buildings are layered, and the beautiful shapes they make. I want to do a painting of this scene. Do you see the car boot-there was no one there-I don't know why it was up.

This little mural is in Deptford on side of the Deptford Arms.

We nipped down to the beach later on-can you see how cold it is?

It is cold here in NYC. Last night it was in the teens and it is expected the same tonight. The mural is lovely. Enjoyed seeing your view of Greenwich. Stay warm.

Sounds like you had a great day! It's cold here too and I have a feeling we are going to have a long winter. Thanks for posting the pictures. I always love looking at them!

oh i like that picture of the layered buildings too, and the trees framing it.

i'm sure that i saw your pic of the train graffiti on weheartit.com - i can remember, because it took me a while to figure out it was a train, so covered in graffiti was it!

i must admit, i do love a bit of clever graffiti, just not tags, which appear like messy scribbles everywhere.
