By Car and by Train

Today has been another long day in England visiting customers.

English Breakfast, Food, Sausage, Eggs, Bacon, BeansI started the day off with a good English breakfast before being picked up by my colleague.

Hammersmith Bridge, Suspension Bridge, Thames, RiverWe started by visiting a customer in the northern suburbs of London and then headed south across the Hammersmith bridge. The Hammersmith Bridge is a historic suspension bridge that is built across the Thames River.

Hammersmith is also where my Jenks ancestors came from in England.

Wimbeldon library, Brick Building, Library, English LibraryThe next customer was in Wimbledon. I really like the look of the Wimbledon library. It is a beautiful brick building.

We did see some tennis rackets used as decorations where we stopped for lunch, but other than that you couldn’t tell that the city was home to a large tennis tournament.

Basingstoke, Train Station, Catching a trainAbout half way through the day it was decided that I would visit our office in Cambridge on Thursday. After visiting our customer in Wimbledon it was back to the hotel in Basingstoke to checkout and then off to the train station.

To get to Cambridge I had to take two trains and two subway lines. It was quite fun hauling my bags on the trains and subway.

Platform 9 and 3/4, Harry Potter, Luggage cart, Kings Cross StationThe train from London to Cambridge started in Kings Cross station, so I was able to get a picture of a baggage cart in the wall at Platform 9 3/4.

Tomorrow will be a day at the office before heading back to London to spend the night near the airport.
