The Coles enjoyed a few days in London and packed plenty in from the National Gallery to the London Eye to a meal at Young Cheng in Chinatown. I always appreciate the remarkable exhibits at the Tate Modern and particularly valued the Rachel Whiteread commission, EMBANKMENT, a visually stunning structure consisting of 14,000 plastic casts of cardboard boxes. We spent ages exploring its bizarre corridors. The above photo features my dear son stood casually in the bottom right corner. I’ve always wanted a print of Simon Paterson’s The Great Bear and finally bought one in the Tate Modern shop. I just need a frame for it now.
