Monday 1 July - London

Breakfast was at the Mad Bishop and Bear in Paddington station.  Before 10 a.m. they can only serve alcohol with a meal.  An old lady was eating breakfast along with a pint of Guinness.  My grandmother's neighbor used to get a prescription from her doctor for Guinness.  I tried that with my GP but it didn't work.

We had a good crowd of Eltham College classmates at the Skinners Arms.
Dai Rhys-Tyler, Derek Browne, Dai Bamford, Peter Gregory, Rob Carter, John Palmer, Mike Fulford, Clive Grenyer and me. We had a great relaxed time with lots of laughter and lots of reminiscences - just good fun. There was some money left over in the beer kitty so the Treasurer, Dai Rhys-Tyler, is keeping it for the next event tentatively set for Monday 2 December.

This being the last night of a memorable month, Mary had found a good restaurant in which to have dinner, Browns Bar and Restaurant just off New Bond Steet.
The food and service were both very good, the scallops, trout and duck breast were all prepared very well indeed.

Browns is located in a beautiful listed building
A good way to finish the vacation.
