Kinking the Boots in London

I wanted to see Kink Boots so I decided to be there by 10 am and try and get tickets that are released the morning of the show and for only 20 pounds which is a steal and a close seat. I put out the word to the Universe that I was just going to walk up to the ticket counter and get one instead going early and waiting in line. There was no line and I walked up and got Front Row I was thrilled. Then I headed towards a new destination but made some stops and snapped some photos on the way.

My friend Laurie had told me about statue Doctor Salter's Daydream so I set off to find it, located on Bermondsey Wall East near the Thames. I hopped the tube to Bermondsey Tube Station.  I then headed towards the Wall it was not a long walk and arrived and saw the statues, near the Angel Pub. The Daydream shows Doctor Alfred in old age waving to his daughter and cat his daughter died aged 8. In 2011 the statue was stolen and a campaign raised funds to rebuild and added a statue of his wife Ada.

I then continued to walk along the walk where there was some beautiful views of London and then I headed back to tube and then to Southwark so I could have late lunch at my fave place for lamb. Capital Kehab House as usual it was the best. I then went back to my hotel to rest up and get ready to go see Kinky Boots. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed Kinky boots my front row seat as amazing and the performers were awesome it totally lived up to my expectations and to be so close and actually see the expressions was super duper great.  I then walked over to the Thames to get some night views and then back to my room for the night.
