It seems like an age ago that I shared an image for Thursday Doors or from our trip to London which was just this past January!
I’ve let some of these images marinate long enough. ☺ Here’s one.
One day we Ubered out to Hampton Court Palace the favorite palace of King Henry VIII. It’s 12 miles southwest and upstream from central London on the Thames River.
The drive there was lovely passing small towns and beautiful countryside.
This is an entrance to one side of the palace through the left door and the courtyard entrance in the center. I think the door on the right was a cloak closet, but it’s been awhile since being there that I’ve forgotten! I should have made more notes. It’s a palace I’d like to tour again one day.
Thursday Doors is the creation of Norm 2.0 Head on over to his blog to see many other doors from all over the world that other door lovers have shared.
It feels like an age since I last posted. If you follow me on Instagram you know that I was in London for most of the Christmas Holiday. That’s why I wasn’t posting or commenting on your posts.
On New Year’s Day, we have a family tradition of eating Hot Dogs, sausage, and sauerkraut for luck. I skip the Hot Dogs, as I don’t care for them, but sausage is good! I made it a mission to find a place to eat our traditional meal on New Years Day. I employed Yelp to aid me in finding a good place.
I thought a German place would do the job and found Herman Ze German in the Soho district. I created a Hot- link for you so you can see their menu. See what I did there? 😜It was wonderful! We all had their Chili Brats which is a beef brat, we had fries and a really good German beer the man taking our order recommended. It was Augustiner Munchen Helles bier. It was so good. Unfortunately, we can’t get this particular beer here in the States. Did I take any photos of my food? NO! I forget to do that all the time, but I did take a picture of the beer label so I could look for it here at home but, I haven’t uploaded it, so on the image score for that meal- Total Fail!
After having our “good luck” meal we headed toward our hotel on foot. We did a lot of walking while in London.
While walking through the Soho we stumbled across Chinatown where I did snap this image. Oh, look there’s a crane for Dan, and Lanterns for Joey! 😀
We’re home, and I’ve still got to get the Christmas decorations down and put away and catch up on all the laundry. I hope your New Year is off to a great start!
