One of the things I love about London is the rain.
It is quintessential London to me.
I have learned how to dress for rain since moving to England.
You have to be prepared.
Light rain coat, umbrella, the right shoes,
rain hat and a plastic bag to hold it all when needed.
If you have the items above...you can handle anything.
What is so special about rain over London?
Even with the darkest skies you can find something special.
I ducked out of the rain to the Wallace Collection today.
It is a national museum within an historic London town house.
It contains 25 galleries of 18th century paintings, furniture, porcelain
and wonderful Old Master paintings along with armoury
that my 10 year old son would love.
Best of all is the beautiful courtyard with a cafe and brasserie.
Honestly, it is a gem and such a surprise when you open the door
and see it nestled in the center of the building.
If you ever need to get away from it all, rain or shine,
visit the Wallace Collection. This was my second visit
and I know it won't be my last.
Today, my favourite painting...
|The Swing by Jean-Honore Fragonard (1767).|
