Day 5

24 Sep

Today was the changing of the guard ceremony (which was canceled due to rain), Westminster Abbey, and shopping at Harrods.  It doesn’t sound like too much but we were wiped by the end of today.  Maybe everything is finally catching up with us.

But, we will power through…

Here are a few pictures from today:

You are not allowed to take pictures in the actual abbey.  But you can trust me when I say it was absolutely magnificent and breathtaking.  We saw the tombs of Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, Bloody Mary, Edward the Confesser (the 1st), and Edward the 3rd (Longshanks, who was the bad guy in Braveheart), not to mention Isaac Newton, Robert Browning, Chaucer, and so many others.  The history in that building is just unbelievable.

Tomorrow is our last full day in London.  Now that I’ve figured out the tube I have to leave and go home. 🙂 We will head out in the morning for Notting Hill (Portobello Market) and then make our way to Hyde Park.

Here’s our hotel:

The Lobby

Just so you know, I’ve taken pictures of all of the things I’ve eaten this week so that everyone can share in the culinary delight.  Really it’s for my husband who could care less about my pictures of historic buildings and ramblings about the crown jewels. He wants to know what’s on the menu.

Tomorrow, babe, is just for you.  Miss you.

Love from across the pond,
