London continued.......

The second day we were in London dawned bright and sunny but decidedly chilly. The plan was to take one of the tour buses to show Mollie some of the famous land marks. So after a really good breakfast, in the hotel, (I should have taken a photo~ or maybe it's as well I didn't as you would see how much we ate!), we walked and caught the bus on Baker Street. You will see Mollie in one of the pictures alongside a statue of one of this street's famous residents. We manged to get under cover seats on the top deck of the bus so we had some protection from the wind. I wonder how many of the landmarks you can recognise in the photos. The link will actually take you to a virtual tour if you need some clues.

We didn't have enough time to take the boat tour which was also part of the package. This was a shame for Mollie (I have actually done this trip in the past) but she didn't seem to mind, and there's always next time!!
It was a really enjoyable two days and we arrived back in Bristol around 8:15 pm. The guys had not really stirred while we had been gone, except to buy take aways!!

Thank you Beccy and Joules for a really lovely present.

The pictures ARE wonderful but your artistry with them is truly amazing. I cannot seem to do anything but just stick mine up.

Great job and I like the picture of you when you were little on your sidebar.

I do miss our London trips we used to make from Dover although we ran out of England after 5 yrs of living there mainly because of the depressing weather!:D
We loved Manchester and Blackpool too. Enjoyed the photos, bet Mollie always remembers this trip fondly and granny too!:)

Thanks for the lovely tour of London. I have never been there but would love to some day!

grannymar~ I have a great family.

lisa I still have some posts about my San Fran trip to publish.

sam I'm learning slowly~ it's photoshop that's frustrating me currently. But I worked out how to copyright these, top ones are best!

sandy I have a neat little prog on my mac which makes it easy (but don't tell anyone!)

asha no one would live here for the weather I agree it's far too depressing.

misty~ thank you.

elena jane first day was cloudy but the sunday skies were beautiful.

devon that is a nice compliment~ not sure my artistic daughter would agree!

erik I'll remember that invitation!

rachel I thought everyone would be a bit fed up with jokes this week!

alix as I explained to sandy I have a prog which does help!

Oh how I long to visit London again. I was young when I visited and didn't appreciate it like I would if I visited today. Thanks for sharing your photos, and what a lovely gift.

Those are some really nice photos, Chris. I keep meaning to book a trip round London for my kids. It looks like it's worth it! I might just do that this coming Spring or Summer; you've inspired me:)!
