London ~ random photo recap

Yoga Poses in Public Places Tate Britain
This is an especially cool yoga pose in public places. Why? I'm in the middle of a performance art piece with those dancers in red, on the white maze at the Tate Britain, London. They are doing historical dances in an antique setting, according to the artist.
Husband Don and I, on the River Thames with the Millennium bridge behind us.
I'm home from 2 weeks in England. A few days in London (shown here) and the teaching at Stratford-upon-Avon, then to Birmingham for the Quilt Festival. 

One of the highlights of our visit to London was seeing Lin-Manuel Miranda's In the Heights at the Kings Cross Theatre. It was EXCELLENT!! (Of course you know, he created Hamilton.) 
Tate Britian
I love the photo above. I caught this little girl sitting on the floor drawing one of Georgia O'Keeffe's paintings. I spoke to her, of course. She was about 7 years old, and informed me this painting was her favorite in the "O'Keeffe Exhibition." She was drawing one of O'Keeffe's Taos, NM, landscapes with color pencils. I told I had just visited that location and that her rendition was very good. She grinned! Great kid. Great parents to encourage her!

Husband and two friends at London's oldest still in operation pub. Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese on Fleet Street. The likes of Mark Twain and Charles Dickens. 

So thrilled to see this retrospective of Georgia O'Keeffe's work at the Tate Modern.  
Grab a cuppa and watch this hour long documentary from BBC. It's fabulous!
