Lazy Sunday

We stayed up till a ridiculous hour of the morning to watch the big fight between 'Pacman' Pacquiao vs. 'Sugar' Shane Mosely. I obviously napped beforehand because for those who did watch it, that was hell of a wait. It wasn't the greatest of fights that I've seen but still very proud. Well Done Manny on the win. Representin' Philippines. Anyways, this allowed us a nice long Sunday lie in. Perfect!!!

To extend this relaxing ambiance throughout our day, we diverted ourselves out of bed and indulged in a 'Lazy Sunday' dinner at "The Yacht" that sits upon the Temple Pier. I've seen this place a million times but never thought much of it. I must say though, riverside restaurants are always a treat; this one in particular was impressive.

On arrival, we grabbed a drink at the bar and sat in the comfy lounge; soaking up the spectacular views of London as it sits opposite the London Eye and other sights. We then moved into the dining area where dinner commenced. There were many choices; mostly traditional British carvery. Mmmm...

For starters, Sean had himself a vegetable soup and I went for the warm brioche with chicken liver pate and salad. Followed by traditional beef slices together with Yorkshire pudding and a selection of peas, parsnips, cabbage, carrots, potato wedges & mash. for our mains. Mouth watering much?! For dessert, Sean had pistachio ice cream which was very tasty indeed and I had a strawberry cheesecake which was to die for.

Its a bit rocky I must warn you... not so great if you get sea sick BUT it was definitely a lovely experience. The warm & calm decor really sets a romantic setting for those couples but it  also exudes a relaxing delight for family dinners too.
