London Day 14 - time to go home

This two weeks has flown by yet we are happy to have seen so many people and Steve enjoyed a great first visit to my former home town. 
Our last morning was pissing down. We packed, chatted with Paul who kindly worked from home so we could spend some time with him and headed into town to meet Karen for lunch 
Our last selfie at stop P Isle of Dogs and one last photo at Canary Wharf DLR station. 
Our big plan for the last day was going up the Walkie-Talkie building to the SkyGarden. As you can see from this before and after pic series when we headed to our long awaited booking time we couldn't even see the building for the cloud. 
So sadly we cancelled our booking. Impossible to get another the same day that has gone into the list for next time. 
Another of the things on the list was lunch at Caravan which we did achieve. Great coffee as promised Sophie. 
We escorted Karen back to work so we could delay the goodbye. So last photo on the tube. 
She works in such a fantastic part of London. Final selfies with Karen at work then with Paul at home before we departed. They have been so great letting us stay so long and entertaining us! Will miss them. 
The day had cleared up so our formerly dreaded commute to Heathrow was ok. We left the apartment at 6:30 and had an OK run on the tubes. 
Post checkin we ate in an Italian airport bar. Must say Heathrow terminal 3 is the most affordable airport we have seen this trip. 
The football was on so all bars were packed where tvs are present. 
Bye London it's been a blast.
