London and Lyon

I'm back in London, after spending the weekend+ with my daughter, her husband, and his family in Lyon. I haven't taken many photographs because my son-in-law has a new camera and he's snapping away at everything, and he's promised to send me his shots. But, until I get them, I've decided to put up some of mine here.

The opening shots are of London's King's Cross station ...

King's Cross St Pancras

It's cold, and the leaves are turning to yellow and gold - except in this
little alcove

And now, on to Lyon:

The view from atop a hill, looking down on Lyon

We arrived at the basilica just as the bells pealed for the start of mass. So, we didn't get too much of a look-around inside. The outside was magnificent enough, I feel, to not make me feel too bad about missing the inside.

These details - above and below - are for me, and my doodly-art ;)

A sneaky pix of the inside while mass was being sung. We were there for about
five minutes. Brought back a lot of old memories of church-going-times for me.

The clear-blue skies of Lyon, on Sunday, were amazing.

It was tough getting down the huge steps; but a lot tougher climbing back up
to the top.

Roses, and rose-hips, growing right in the centre of town

  1. I'm glad you have amazing holidays days :))

  2. Thank you for visiting, Tatjana :)

    If it rains today, my daughter and I are planning a visit to the Tate. I'm looking forward to that.

  3. Very nice pictures Pat.

  4. Thank you for dropping by, Vera, and for the kind comment.
