Finally we are seeing sun again in London! After weeks of rain, we woke up on Saturday to the sun streaming through our window.

We went out for lunch on Saturday with Brandt's friend Keri, at a nice restaurant in a place called Shepherd's Bush. We got an outside table, so enjoyed the sun before heading off to the tube to go watch the Prologue of the Tour de France through London. The riders were racing 7km on individual time trials through London, and went past sights such as Westminster, Buckingham Palace, St James Park and ended on 'The Mall' where Brandt and I watched them from the finish line.

The sites, sounds and colours of the event made it good fun to watch, even though we didn't know who the riders were. The beating sun made it a great relaxing afternoon!

The riders are leaving London tomorrow and heading to Kent, on the next leg of the race.
