Hello London!


London, England will always have a place in my heart!

London memory short list:

*Intentionally ignoring our taxi drivers sign for "Josh Willink" so we could get supper...
*Staircase to another skinny spiral staircase to our attic room...
*Singing hymns... along with hundreds of others at Westminster Abby Cathedral 
*"Spoil Carrie  Day" at Downton Abbey (Highclere Castle) was everything a fan could hope for and than some tea.. (Click HERE to see all about it! ) 
*Buckingham Palace... Amazing!
*Just happening to see the Queen and Prince of England, 20 feet away from their carriages!
*Little me stopping a double deck bus in the middle of Abbey road for a picture...
*Have style or go home!
*That London Eye is all its cracked up to be!
*Roasted Peanuts deserve a national Holiday...
*Big Ben... Tall, dark and handsome.
(Warning: many pictures to follow.)
May I introduce to you... Queen Elizabeth II
*Sigh* London....
