Surprise, surprise...

Yesterday, Ben took me on a surprise day out for our 18 month anniversary. All he told me was that I had to be at his house and ready to go by 9.30am! We had the best day, I couldn't have asked for anything better :)

We started the day by having brunch in a lovely restaurant in Blackheath then as the weather was so gorgeous, we walked up the hill to Greenwich Park. I love this park as it reminds me of my childhood and cycling there with my family and spending the day playing with my sister. We walked to the observatory so that we could look at the view of London and to see how the Olympic preparations are coming along.

We then headed to the newly refurbished Cutty Sark and the down to the River Thames so that we could get a clipper to the London Eye. I've never been on a Thames Clipper before but it is a really lovely way of getting into the capital if you're not in a rush and if the weather is good. It's basically a river taxi and took us 45mins to get from Greenwich to the Southbank which in the glorious sunshine was lovely. You get brilliant views of London landmarks on your journey and is well worth the £4 that is cost us!

As another part of the day, Ben took me to Hyde Park and we hired a pedalo. It was so much fun being on the water and just chilling in the afternoon sun. I was slightly paranoid I was going to drop my camera in the water though! 

For the final and main part of the day, we went to see a show called "Cantina" which was showing as part of the events that are happening at the Southbank. The performance was a sort of quirky circus act. We were directed into a old fashioned circus tent and sat in the round surrounding a small raised stage and tightrope. The show was amazing!! One of the women walked on the tightrope in platform heels - I have absolutely no idea how she did it! All the performers were incredible, they were so powerful and so skilled. If any of you get the chance to go to London, you should definitely see the show, I think it's on until September.
