At least there was no Kew at the entrance here and we could go straight in.
Arbus Mettalicus – for boys who climb trees who no longer have the knees. There was quite a bit of knee trembling to be seen up there, wandering through the foliage. Link
You’ve never seen water lillies like this. They would take the frog and a princess!
We had a delicious Ottolenghi picnic in Kensington Gardens today. Gerhild says he is famous. Well, it was famously expensive, but it was worth it.
A virtual jacuzzi to cool you down on hot days like today.
A free beer for anyone who knows where this is. I like the helmet the woman cyclist bottom right is wearing, the one holding the saxophone. I guess that just one week in Portland might be a bit short for anything similar.
Super cool Gerhild with a background provided by Manchester School of Art.
Not many pictures today when we met Liliana, Nathan and Chris in the Red Lion in Crown Passage.
So here’s a video of one of Nathan’s songs.
And here’s a video of Lockes the hatter, just in case you need a made to measure bowler, panama or any other sort of hat.
And here’s my free Michael Landy T-shirt, freshly ironed by Gerhild for my trip to Portland tomorrow with Mark.
Today, I went to the British Museum, but first we went to the national portrait gallery for the annual BP show. We both voted for this one as our favourite.
Gerhild went to lunch with her pal and I started with a nice oak clock by Charles Rennie Macintosh.
It was very hot in the museum, so I felt that Satan dragging condemned souls into the jaws of hell was spot on here.
Then I moved on to some Mexican portraits, although I’m not sure that they meet BP’s entrance requirements for the competition.
