Several days to catch up, but I'll go heavy on pictures this time- hard to resist- and keep the commentary light.
We picked Gabby up at the airport- yay!
Right away we went on a Thames River Cruise, with commentary, from Westminster Pier to the Tower of London.
Then we hopped onto the Bus tour around the whole city to give Gabby an overview of London. We hopped off at Piccadilly Circus to buy theatre tickets for the evening.
And the next morning we were up bright and early for our guided tour of Westminster Abbey- fascinating.
The Tower of London! The Beefeater who gave us the tour was hysterical. History we'll remember delivered with a growl and a punchline.
On the lions of Trafalgar Square. The series of shots of the girls actually getting up there is quite funny....
On our little walking tour we met a gentleman from San Antonio who graduated from my High School's rival, Churchill. We asked him to take our picture anyway.
Crepes made by a Lebanese man who has family in Virginia and was quite friendly- in a nice way. Oh yum! We didn't realize a crepe could be so filling!
We are tired, but not exhausted, after a leisurely day wandering about the streets of Paris. We also gave le Metro a try and found it not as frightening as we feared. Learning the London underground system helped a lot I'm guessing. Tomorrow we begin using out museum passes with a tour of Versailles- oo-la-la!
