Sunshine in London

Sunshine in LondonWell… was still raining when we woke up, but by about 10am, we could see blue skies and the sun peaking through the clouds. Yea!On today’s agenda was Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and the Parliament building.  The walk wasn’t too bad……maybe a couple of miles.

The buildings are all so beautiful and old.  We took tons of pictures! We didn’t go in Westminster Abbey (it would have cost about 70$).  They certainly don’t give anything away in London!

Next, we walked to the palace.  By this point I was getting pretty tired. We stopped by the fountain across the street from the palace and rested for a while. Poor Justin. I’m sure that he gets tired of me fussing about how exhausted/thirsty I am! My short legs have trouble keeping up with him!

Buckingham Palace is very impressive, but you aren’t allowed to go inside. (No mom, the Queen Mother was not outside walking all of her corgis! I was disappointed too!)

We took some pictures, then headed to the Queen’s Shop to get a couple of souvenirs.

After than we walked back to the hotel, and I took about a 2.5 hour nap! Then, we got dressed for dinner and went to the club lounge for drinks and snacks. It was Asian night in the lounge. Sushi, yum!

For dinner, we ate at Corrigan’s.  Luckily, it wasn’t too far, and we could avoid the ridiculous taxi prices.  Unfortunately, it started to rain again. Boo!

The restaurant was very nice. We split the pressed duck liver appetizer.  It was delicious and my favorite dish of the night. Justin had beef shin with tenderloin and marrow for his entree.  I had the pork belly special.  They were good.  I think Justin’s was better. Either way, we enjoyed our last night in London.

Tomorrow, we leave for Paris.  It is about an hour flight. Looking forward to experiencing a new city!
