Hi. On Friday I had the day off and went on a little trip to Chelsea to meet my friend Sarah for lunch. I hadn’t seen her for almost a year, so it was great to catch up.
I went by train from Windsor Riverside to Richmond, then tube to Sloane Square. I stopped off for coffee at Peter Jones Sloane Square, looked at some overpriced clothes, then had a wander down the King’s Road. It’s been a long time since I’ve done that. I spotted a few interesting things en route. Don’t ask me what the flags above are for, but I quite like them.
This sign below says “All your life you were waiting for this moment”.. mm.. I’m not sure I was really feeling that!
I looked for the Japanese shop Muji, but it had closed down. There was a big Peloton shop nearby. Signs of the times.
Scooters. I’m not a fan of these. Very dangerous the way they weave amongst the traffic and on the pavements in Windsor.
The hanging baskets were quite nice.
I spotted this gorgeous bookshop. I’ve never noticed it before. I bet it’s been there for many many years.
Very tall, narrow building.
As I turned down a side street, I noticed this blue plaque.
Then I got distracted by the gorgeous architecture, in particular the posh front doors with steps leading up to them, love them! You must feel important approaching your house up one of these sets of steps.
So shiny! Someone must polish this plaque.
Lots of pretty flowers and window boxes. It’s a very beautiful although expensive area of London.
Space where a house is being reconstructed.
Marvellous architecture all around.
The National army museum, I’ve never been here. Maybe it’s interesting.. I’m not that keen on war.
Royal Hospital Chelsea, home of the Chelsea Pensioners. Over 300 retired British soldiers, male and female, live here. They have a bright red uniform.
Chelsea Physic Garden. I will tell you all about that next time. It’s lovely! I’ve been there many times for lunch with Sarah who is a member there. I’m never disappointed.
Here is a sneak peek of the interesting plants, over the wall… to be continued….Xx
