London on Sunday

A rare day off on Sunday - to the Tate Modern, where we saw the Gauguin exhibition and then to an afternoon of rapper sword dance and clog/step, hosted by Thrales Rapper. Last year, I managed to coincide being in the south east for the same weekend event.

View from the South Bank on Sunday morning - the Thames playing at being the seaside.

On the way to Tate Modern -

Ai Weiwei's installation -

The Gauguin exhibition was excellent, although there was enough to have kept us there all day. Click this link for an online resource of Gauguin's work.

Thrales Rapper (above) have just won DART (Dancing America Rapper Tournament) with Sallyport Sword Dancers coming third - two UK wins - plus winning the Joie de Vivre award and Sallyport winning Best Kit. Those rosettes are almost as good as the ones at quilt shows .

Guests this year included the excellent Whip the Cat - click the photo below to see a video clip of them dancing in Nottingham -
