A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

London Day #4

As many can attest to, and have traveled to, these old roads of London and their environs, has way too much to do and see. A week or less (our category) is simply not "enough time."  However, we are all grateful for the opportunity to travel for a spell and really, just scratch the surface. 

First thing on the agenda today was touring another "palace", the Stamford Bridge Stadium, home of the Chelsea Football Club. What we’ve learned is that these football/soccer clubs are steeped in rich tradition(s) dating back to the 1880’s, though Chelsea formed their club in 1905. Whole communities showed their "colors" for their teams and revered their players through thick and thin. It was an amazing morning, and tickled for Bill, "The Best Daughter" and Ryan taking it all in. 

After lunch, we headed over to The Tower of London/London Bridge and strolled through that area (got there too late to tour so going back tomorrow), and also snuck in a quick visit to Harrod’s. One more full day in this historic city!
