A Magnificent View of London from The Shard

I had a FAB time in London yesterday. My friend Valerie is full of surprises. "Let's go somewhere nice for lunch to celebrate out birthdays," she said. (Mine was last week and Val's is next week.) "Let's go to the Oblix." Fine by me, I thought, I didn't know it, but Val knows some nice places, so... Nice? When we arrived at London Bridge and she pointed to The Shard I almost fainted. The Oblix restaurant is on the 32nd Floor and has the most spectacular views over my favourite city. The wine was lovely, the food was delicious, and waiters were good looking. Ooops! I meant the service was very good. And when we finished eating a young waiter filled our glasses and suggested we might like to drink our wine at a table by the window. We'd already quaffed our wine.  What he had given us, while we relaxed and took in the view, was complimentary.

    1. It sure was Susan. I lived in London for 38 years. It is one of my favourite cities in all the world. Yes it is full of surprises. Even on the ground it's surprising how you notice things change. And from 37 floors high, it really has the wow factor. Thank you for leaving a message. x
