We awoke this morning to bright sunshine streaming in our windows. Looking out it was hard to distinguish the scene from a typical Gold Coast day...but I knew the wind blowing here was not warm - instead it was icy.

We took the subway across town to London Bridge Station, where we grabbed a coffee before boarding our train.Just an aside - I went looking for a bin in which to dispose of my empty cup and found that there were none - anywhere! Upon commenting to Janette, she informed ...
