London Life - The Market (13)

Our first full day happened to be Saturday, which is market day for our daughter, Cait. We love to go with her as it’s an amazing market with not only beautiful produce but eggs, fish, organic meat, flowers, artisan breads and fabulous baked goods as well. Oh, what a market it is, check it out!

We picked out a sweet treat at the market. When I opened the little paper packet and show it to Luke, this was his response. I felt the same way when I took the first bite!

 

London Life - Kensington (5)

It seems there are flowers peeking and poking through every nook and cranny here in the UK. And they seem to be ignoring the fact that winter is right around the corner and they’re definitely going out in style!

London Life - The Tube 1

Public transportation is the norm here as it is in most big cities. We navigate all over London via “The Tube” (the London underground transportation system). It’s clean, quiet and very efficient.

And what’s a day in London without the Queen? There she was and all dressed in royal purple!

So that’s a little glimpse of London through our eyes. We’re constantly amazed at the natural, God-created beauty that is so evident in this city and throughout in the United Kingdom and appreciate  the charm of British history, architecture, culture, people and lifestyle.

We’ll be back on Tuesday to share an iconic British treat, Sticky Toffee Pudding. You will love this incredibly delicious taste of England. It’s a favorite dessert here at The Café will be perfect for your holiday recipe arsenal! Cheers!

  1. Oh my gosh, Chris, I’m so hopelessly behind! We just returned from a trip to Georgia where we visited dear friends and am trying to catch up here 🙂 Your daughter is beautiful! I think she could be a model. What an amazing market and the photos that Scott took are wonderful! That smile on your granddaughter’s face is priceless ♥

  2. These are wonderful pictures, Scott. Thank you. Michael and I used to go to London once a year – only – but we didn’t have grandchildren there. I haven’t been back for at least 12 years and I miss that city. I have always thought the Brits were special in every way and your pictures only tell me that still is the case.

  3. What fabulous pictures, Scott. . Thank you. Michael and I used to go to London only once a year (we didn’t have grandchildren there). I haven’t been there for at least 12 years and I miss it. I have always thought the Brits are special in every way and your picture only tells me that nothing has changed.

  4. Thankyou so much for sharing your beautiful photos….I love London. I have been 3times in the last 30 years or so….each time was special, thats one city I would never tire of……especially the flowers everywhere………how lucky you are.

    • Thanks for your wonderful comment Marcia! We do love this city – it is so international now, and the range of food is literally staggering. You can find anything the world has to offer here – which makes these two foodies very excited!

  5. I’m disappointed, Chris, you didn’t let me know you were leaving so I could sneak into your luggage, lol!!

    Hope you and Scott are enjoying family and you must spoil the new “grandpuppy!! Enjoy, and God bless you for this recipe, it’s wicked and may very well be on my Thanksgiving table.

  6. You are so lucky to be visiting London so often, the best place in the world for me. My husband and I lived there for one year before the children were born (well, I got pregnant in Walthamstow) and I still miss it so much, I dream about being there again regularly, then I wake up and am dissapointed….

  7. It’s been many years since I left my birthplace in Nottingham England. Colorado is my home now. but when I saw Scott’s wonderful photos I certainly felt a twinge of wanderlust. He certainly captured the essence of British culture. You have a beautiful family. Enjoy your visit and I look forward to your recipes.

  8. I too was curious if the children had acquired British accents, I just love to hear the accent. Thank you for letting us visit London with you.

  9. How lovely! The only reason that I am not insanely envious is that you so obviously know how lucky you are and seem to enjoy every moment! I love Sticky Toffee Pudding and make it every winter. I look forward to your recipe though, as your versions of many of my favorites are always excellent.
