Our adventure into London was certainly another highlight of my trip.
It is not exactly conveneint to get there...
first a two hour drive, in traffic,
(that big truck is called a lorry in the UK, btw)
then when we got closer to the city, Amy drove us to three different towns
before we found a place to park her little minicooper
so we could catch a ride on The Tube.
Have I mentioned that Amy was the best little tour guide.
I still get chills when I think of this spot...
We had gotten off the underground rail transit,
and rode at least three sets of escalators to reach the street.
Of course, I was busy watching my step
so that I wouldn't fall in all of the congestion.
And when we came out on the sidewalk,
I looked up.
This is one of many favorite moments.
Big Ben was right..across..the street!
Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament
Add this to my list of favorites.
In a way, I felt like I had been here before?
And this is why...
I always loved, loved, loved Princess Diana.
I watched her wedding to Prince Charles with great interest,
as we both were married in 1981.
And then years later,
I set my alarm to get up in the middle of the night to watch
William and Kate's wedding...
...right here in the Westminster Abbey.
Taking photos is prohibited here.
(they will confiscate your camaras/phones)
So thus, the google images.
It was breathtaking to be here in person.
Next stop...Buckingham Palace.
Happy Father's Day to all who care for and nurture our young.
