Tuesday morning brought some sun. We tubed over to Covent Gardens and snooped around the theater district, the market, and the many side streets and various shops. Lots of fun. When we found ourselves at the Portrait Gallery, we took advantage of the free admission and explored. We skipped the Tudors, and instead viewed the 20th century portraits and the Queen. Fabulous collections. From there we walked over to Trafalgar Square and basked with our picnic lunch in what little sunlight was left. An enjoyable visit to the National Gallery (another free and glorious British treasure) brought us close to the great Impressionist and Dutch masters, most enjoyable. On to Westminster Abbey for a walking tour unfortunately, as soon as we arrived, it started pouring, so we decided to preclude our tour and enjoy some R&R in our room.

Soon, it was time to meet Panda, a SlowTrav friend, and her husband for dinner at the nearby Fishworks, where we wined and dined quite well. I thoroughly enjoyed my very properly done fish and chips. The petit Chablis was very good, too, as was the company.
