In the basin ...

... Paddington Basin, that is!
 Mooring at the end of Paddington Basin are surrounded by high rise ... cows????
On Wednesday Sue, Vic and I set out for Covent Garden ...
... to watch some street entertainers ... we came across just this guy who was taking so long trying to get an audience around him we got fed up of waiting and left him to it!
So we walked on - American TV network outside broadcasting in Trafalgar Square for the royal wedding on Friday 
Nelsons Column
Bunting, flags and barriers at Admiralty Arch
Sue and Vic checking out the cost of coffee at the Supreme Court of Justice! ...
