Happy New Year!

I am feeling a little jaded today so this is just a short post to wish you all Happy 2013 and thank you for your support during 2012!

We spent last night in central London together with some 250,000 other people. The fireworks were breathtaking, but for me at least, such crowds are just too much to bear…we were lucky to watch the display from the luxurious comfort of a riverboat moored near The Embankment, so at least we were in the dry and well fed and watered by the time the clock struck 12.

Our refuge last night.

Big Ben about to strike 12.

The London Eye sprouting fireworks

More fireworks...

...and some more...

and more.

The most fantastic fireworks I have ever seen. Hearing the Big Ben live at the same time was just magical :-)
Happy New Year!

Hi Helene!

Love your blog since Mom wrote hers.

London sounds very wonderful and exciting at New Years. You had a better time than I did in Green Bay, Wisconsin!

Come see my blog at "weary caregiver."

Took care of Mom "old? who? me?" until she passed.
