Day 30 – London

It being Sunday they slept late and after breakfast they walked to Westminster and caught the music and the recessional at the  end of the service.  They walked around for a while.  She keeps mentioning seeing “funny” or “queer” people. ( I interpret this to mean just different or unusual from people watching in Boston or New York)

They had lunch in Scott’s – {a famous restaurant on Coventry Street in the West End.)  My mother had a sherry. lobster salad, and strawberries

After lunch They went to the British Museum and then via what seemed a long and complicated route to Hampton Court.  Returned the same way and finally took a bus to the foot of Haymarket where they met the Lewises and the DeLongs.  They all walked back to Westminster.  Walked through Trafalgar to Lyons Corner House.  Along the way she had a serious talk with Mr. Lewis about religion,  Met Mr. Thomas.  They all had something to eat and then waked up to the Belgravia.  It seemed sad to say goodby to them again.
