a nice day out

27 Oct

london 6.34pm 13.8C dark clear dry friday 2017

today is an unusual day for freebies. so many occurring today that they clash. but the one i wanted to go to was the free fish and chips at cutty sark gardens, at 12pm. so i made my way there and got there in plenty of time, but there was no queue at all. i met my friends, the couple who likes going to these freebies, and it was really a delicious fish and chips.

its a nice change from the usual freebie fares. i have been to this part of london before, on a walking trip, when the route included a walk under the thames, at this point. here the thames is rather narrow, so the walk was not long. 

then i took the train back to leicester square, but the freebies being given out  , free doughnut and free eclair,  i did not bother get as one has too long a queue, the doughnut one,  whilst  the other has finished its quota of 50 eclairs.

and then i met my friend ian at the virgin lounge and chat about his holiday to menorca recently. and later we went to see the new lights of the advertising billboard in piccadilly. ian said he thought there will be one huge sign, but it was all bits and pieces of smaller adverts. i too hoped to see a big one and i thought it would feature one every 10mins, but nothing doing.

its been a nice bright blue sunny day today so it was pleasant to be out and about, and all these freebies is just an excuse to get out. i really made use of my freedom pass today.
