So yeah, we went to London! It was wonderful. Father type had to go to Dublin on business anyway, so it was a good time to tack on a vacation. And perfect timing for our 32nd anniversary!
I think I will tackle this by days, so here is our departure and arrival day, Saturday and Sunday.
Here is the father type as we board our plane to London from JFK. So exciting!
The Heathrow Express to Paddington Station, one of our "home" stations for the week. Everything thrilled me in London, from the chimney pots to the architecture to the tube stations. And now I know why they are called "tube" stations too!
The mews where we lived for the week.
The door of our flat.
Our flat was very close to the Bayswater Road and Hyde Park. Thanks to Sandra SamplerLover for the suggestion of which area in London to stay!
We went for a walk in the evening to Kensington Palace. Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park are such pretty parks!
And we managed an English breakfast on arrival
And fish and chips for the father type and a burger for me at the local pub for dinner.
I even had a pale ale!
The local pub.
I even managed to watch the end of the French Open final in the pub!
I will post over the next several days, I think. Overkill? Maybe. :D
