D ( my hubby) has been the photographer for the greater part of this short trip.
Merci encore, D!
The number 73 bus took us out of the bustle of London and dropped us off on Church street, in the London suburb of Stoke Newington.
We came to this part of London to be close to our wedding and reception area. We had already been to London in the 90’s, but we were in a radically different area than this. We were in the suburbs near the rail lines towards Heathrow Int’l . I much prefer this town to the other one that we lodged in.
Stoke Newington is well served by the red bus routes to and from Central London ad has a variety of interesting shops and restaurants.
Here are a few city center sites:
At the intersection of Church street where the red buses turn…
People outside a pub.
Thai alters at a Thai restaurant ( we dined there with Anne the night before our departure; it was excellent).
Caramba! Mexican color on a drab day.
Or how about Indian?
The Daniel De Foe pub. De Foe was born in this town in 1660 according to Wikipedia. He wrote Robinson Crusoe
Advertising for an old business still on the building.
Fancy gold gates.
The sight of New Saint Marys means that the wedding venue was in sight. This part of town was about a 15-20 minute walk from our lodging.
Have a great day and see you soon.
