Lo-Tiv-Ro 2012 - Day 2

Day 2 of the trip consisted of a trip to Highgate Cemetery and wandering around some of Lisa's old haunts as she lived in London for about a year. Here are a handful, or more, of pictures from the cemetery. I have to say that the day was beautiful and sunny, even though I think the cemetery would have been very interesting if it had been cold and dank, but we can't get everything, can we?

General Grave Sites:



Thought this was really cool with the pen pot left next to the headstone.


Is this Jesus or an ugly woman, we couldn't tell...

Did we have an escape?!?


There were a number of graves that had animals included, here are the dog ones that I saw:



And, there was one grave site of a man who had a "menagerie", which included a lion. This is also the start of a mini-obsession that started to take pictures of lions (of course with a dog named Leo the pictures of lions were going to start at some time, right?).

After the cemetery, we walked into town and stopped at this little restaurant called Corks and Forks. The service was terrible but the food was good and the experience of sitting and letting the day pass while watching the world walk by was pleasant:

This place had a whole selection of California and Washington wines (I didn't check them out to see if they had any Texas wines).

We then headed into town and wandered around near the canals. We did see one guy who paid me some attention:

We stopped for dinner where Audrey had Bangers and Mash:

Lastly we wandered around and took some night pictures, here is one of my examples:
