Rainy Day Activities

The past two days have been accompanied by an on & off drizzle. Being the determined travelers we are we let nothing stop us from our adventures. On Wednesday Mr. C left for meetings while Mrs. C, the kids, & I ventured out to the London Aquarium. Regardless of the rain we stopped to smell the flowers all the way to the bus stop.




C has been keeping a wonderful travel journal that he brings everywhere...& writes in every chance he gets.




The boys love sitting on the top level of our double decker bus!

Once we arrived at Westminster Bridge we discovered it would be a looong wait before seeing any fish.


Goodbye, sun!

What we didn't realize was that all the little London babies are out of school right now. We were convinced every one of them brought their entire extended family to the aquarium that day. Nonetheless we made it inside & managed to see some of the exhibits that weren't swarmed by people.


Watch out for that alligator, H

Later the boys & their parents went to the Ireland vs. England football match at Wembley (lucky ducks!) while H & I had fun of our own watching Dora & eating pizza.

Thursday H & I spent most of our time at the park. The boys went with their parents to a very nice Scottish lunch with friends so the two of us took on London one swing at a time.

On our way home I popped into a little bakery called Paul for lunch. I bought two skinny sandwiches (decision-making is not my forte.) One was on a poppyseed roll with capicola ham, comté cheese, tomaotoes, olive paste, & lettuce the other a combination of smoked salmon, tomato, lemon cream cheese, & lettuce on sesame bread. Both were equally mouthwatering. No pictures of the sandwiches; somehow they disappeared before I could snap a shot. The macaroons, however...


Chocolate, Pistachio, & Vanilla. Drooling yet?

Meanwhile the boys got their swag on at Harrods.


Gucci & Dior, baby!

& Hampton tried on some glasses of her own...


We all had a cozy evening in our flat, happily sipping a wine made near our house in Burgundy. Although I'm thrilled to get there, I am quite content soaking in my current state of being in London.
