Adventures in London

  • The open palm crosses all language barriers. They weren't interested.

  • Eating a helpless little dead little snail. A bit squishy, and salty. . .
emmm... like snot.
  • London Regret #1: Not making over to visit the Royal guards in front of St. James Palace. The 10 year old in me would have really liked to make silly face or two at the guards and see if they really don't react.

  • Regret #2: not smooching in one of those cute red phone booths, in a cramped, germy sort of way it seemed kind of charming.
  • Loved the caramel, rosted nuts from a vendor on the London Bridge. We have to make two visits.

We saw The Queen show, "We Will Rock You". Great show!

The Tube in London. Mind the Gap.

  • London was just as I imagined, Darling! Picadilly Circus, Big Ben, Westminister Abby, Buckingham Palace, Fish and Chips, the National Gallery of Art.
  • Above we have my Favorite Traveling Friend, for obvious reasons: Ridiculous, handsome and FUN, all in one!

  • Most of all I just loved being there with Jess. We weren't in a hurry to do anything in particular just, play together, relax, and have a ball, and so we did.

Your adventures look like it was all just as it should be! You two are just so perfect together!!! You look all the more 'paris-y' since you got back! Thanks for sharing the pics. That park job below looks like quite the challenge! pass on a well done to Jess for that one!

You two are so cute. Hey, did you ever blow your nose after going on the underground? It would come out all sooty and black! Trust me, I've experienced it.

Okay, remember the movie Sliding Doors? The what if? kind of movie? That was London for me. What if I still got married (cause I love the hubby too much) but we didn't have kids. We would have lived in London, I think. I'm definetly going to get back there.
Love the pictures! So fun!
