A quick dash around Nymans in the rain!

I met a friend today and our meeting point was Nymans - for a walk and a bite to eat.

We started with coffee..... chatted..... had some lunch .... chatted...... the rain finally eased to a drizzle.

A short walk around the gardens before it started again.

The colour of the flowers in the borders was great to see on an otherwise dull (weather) day.

Thank you IHD..... for your great company as usual...... :)

and as I type this in the late afternoon?  The clouds have parted to some blue sky and sunshine :D

A Shakespearean afternoon...

Today I went to my very first Shakespear play - Macbeth - at the Globe Theatre in London.  Given that the central area of the Globe is open to the elements we hoped it wouldn't rain!  Just a couple of showers - first one during the interval and then the second just after it ended.  Phew...

We walked through London in the summer sunshine to get to the Globe..

Outside the London Dungeon

and the view on the opposite bank, St. Paul's Cathedral

I thoroughly enjoyed the production. Joseph Millson in the part of Macbeth and Samantha Spiro as Lady Macbeth gave marvellous performances and the emotional energy required was obvious... their characters carried you along....  The three witches were very good too...

Next time?  It's, by constrast, A Midsummer Night's dream... bring it on :D
