Today we headed off to visit downtown London and do some sight-seeing. First order of business was to watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. After that we went to Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and the House of Parliament. The House of Parliament is by far my favorite, and the most beautiful building in London. After that we walked across the Westminster Bridge to The London Eye. After purchasing our tickets we all enjoyed the 30-minute ride on the massive Ferris wheel from which we could see all of London. We then walked down the boardwalk along Jubilee Gardens where we saw lots of street performers. Then over the Jubilee Bridge to the Tube we went to ride to The Tower of London and the Tower Bridge – both beautiful. I didn’t get to enjoy the Tower Bridge last year because our kids were so dead that we just looked at it from a distance and turned around. Finally, we went to Leicester Square where we had dinner and did some shopping. It was a very fun day, and we accomplished virtually all of our major sight-seeing. Now we are back at the flat laughing hysterically as the girls are playing charades. We’re also talking about our friend Stan, and although we are having a great time and more fun than he had when he was here, we are wishing he were here with us. He’s here with us in spirit … and in truth, hello! Whatever! lol
