Here is a picture of the room Auntie Jill and Uncle Derek had us in. I loved the colors and just had to take a picture.
Tuesday Hubby and I had planned to take a Bus Tour around the city. This gave us the chance to see everything and save our legs a bit (and not ride the Underground all day). We used The Original London Tour and even saved some money (which I love) thanks to Auntie Jill sending us the 2 for 1 information from the National Railway in London. Here was the fun open double decker bus we played on all day.
We started the tour at Trafalgar Square
and rode around until we got to the Hyde Park stop.
Fruits and veggies...so yummy looking
We ended a photo-op with the Harrod's Bear
Nigella Lawson's house
And on to Buckingham Palace
And Big Ben
St. Paul's Cathedral (apparently that is what London is like)
cruise on the Thames. I got this awesome smoked salmon salad at a little place near the Tower of London.
Thames River and got some amazing photos of the city since it was almost high tide. Here are a few:
Wednesday with a
And up we went
As scared as I was, this was an amazing experience and I am so glad I did it. Here are some pictures, but they do not even show how AMAZING this was. If you are in London, it is worth the money, I promise!
and over to the Tower of London and to see the Crown Jewels.
The night ended with some yummy Fish and Chips (I love these especially when in England!)
Oh yeah and I got some Sticky Toffee pudding!
What it made a great afternoon snack!
