Another gallery day today. First the Wallace Collection which was not dissimilar to the V&A but with better quality items.
Afterward, walking down Oxford St., we observed an unruly queue of people waiting to get into a Footlocker store. Some had been camped out all night. A little further on we observed a seagull in flight carrying a pigeon. It almost collided with a bus, forcing it to let go its prey. The pigeon took off like a shot with the seagull in hot pursuit, wheeling all over the place. We don’t know how it turned out as they flew into a side street.
Then on to the Tate Britain.
In the evening we met up with Gabi, our friend from Sydney in the early 80’s. We started at a pub in Victoria Station but it was so noisy with World Cup 2014 broadcasts we had to get out after one drink. We then had a fun evening together over a meal at a nearby Italian restaurant.
