Helga's Big Day Out Part II

TheQuietGuy2005 and I were at Tuttons, debating the dessert menu, which had an interesting selection, but not quite what I wanted, so it was agreed that we'd head off in search of dessert somewhere else.

Another wander through Covent Garden Market... before finding ourselves at Maxwell's where my sweet tooth was rewarded with a very delicious cheesecake and Jx decided to have a sundae. All this was washed down with not one, but TWO coffees, more talking and just watching the world pass by. We were entertained by a street entertainer, whom Jx said was a popular landmark in his own right. While we were seated, I roped Jx into a game of I-Spy, and after paying the bill, we were off. Our next stop was at Caffe Nero, in Long Acre. Why was I not surprised when Jx pulled out his Caffe Nero "loyalty" card?? I had thought he was kidding when he mentioned his liking for coffee during chats in the Tub, but I was starting to realise this man has a serious coffee addiction!!

Another coffee down, and we were off! This time we were heading towards the Thames, crossing the river at the Embankment and walking and talking our way past the Royal Festival Hall, and crossing the river again via the Waterloo Bridge.

We decided to refresh ourselves at the Riverside Terrace situated next to Somerset House. A beer, a very expensive bottle of mineral water and tzatziki and houmous dips were ordered, and even more chatting commenced...

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

I'm not a coffee addict! I only occasionally indulge ... a few times a day, maybe ... I rarely have more than 12 cups a day. Mind you, I top up the caffeine levels with Pepsi Max!

By the way, that's an old loyalty card ... they changed the color of the stamps to red about two months ago!
