Hyde Park before a musical interlude....

Yesterday it was hot... today marginally cooler... we were on the train by 7.30.

We wandered through the park..

and became aware that a run in aid of Cancer Research, was taking place today around the park. Many brave ladies running in tremendous heat... they have my admiration!

I'd only taken the Fuji with the 18-55mm lens today, so not many decent birdy shots

 Had a cooling drink in Pret before going into Wigmore Hall for the concert.  The concert hall was beautifully cool...

Today we listened to: the Navarra String Quartet who played..

Franz Schubert's String Quartet in Eshart D8 followed by
Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet in E minor Op. 59 No. 2  'Razumovsky'

Performed brilliantly - and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  There there be awhile before we're back at Wigmore.. but some Shakespeare and opera before we return :D

A quick bite sitting in a local park and then off home.  Great weekend :D
