Even slower Sunday

Another sunny morning so we strode across Hyde Park among all the dog walkers and joggers to Knightsbridge. Destination: the Natural History Museum to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition. Well worth a visit and a potent reminder of the time and effort needed to get really great shots. Post-production fiddling appears to be allowed (unlike anything submitted to the National Geographic). Inspiring and also a challenge as I hope to improve my photography when I have a bit more time. The museum was extremely busy when we had finished viewing so we escaped to a nearby cafe. The Harrods map room is no longer and the map seller the extremely helpful member of staff found for me in Beauchamp Place is closed on Sunday so the bank balance is safe. James was getting agitated as the Scotland-Ireland rugby kick-off approached so having wandered back towards the RSM I suggested we might find a pub to watch it in and so we were ensconced in the Cock & Lion in Wigmore St to see Scotland defeated. James was happy and I had to get in touch with the 1/16 of me that is Irish. Later it was back to Euston and an uneventful train journey home.
