but we'll be back!
camera battery died this morning so no photos until we get home and download them of my iPhone.
We tried to fit in a bunch of stuff today and since it's getting late and we have to be off to Heathrow early in the morning I'll just rattle off a list of madness. More to come, with time and clarity.
-Dropped a bunch of our clothes at Oxfam on Drury Lane (no muffin man sightings, darn it),
-then breakfast in the Crypt; hot chocolate and pastry.
-tickets to theater at the discount booth in Leicester Square (seats to The Inspector Calls. Ask Karl.)
-Tube to Borough for a wonderful and delicious stroll through The Borough Market. THIS IS A MUST when you are in London!!!
All kinds of high end fresh food and goods: seafood of all kinds, meat of all kinds, cheeses, bread, baked goods, spices, hard ciders and beers, wine, fruit and veggies, flowers, olives, beautiful copper cookware, soap.
-Thames Walkway to the Tate Modern. Karl's challenge was to get through three floors of the museum in record time, which we did. Not going to publish how long we spent there.
-Walked across Millenium Bridge.
-while waiting at the intersection in front of St. Paul's, a motorcade sped by.
-WE SAW THE QUEEN.
-I kid you not.
-she and Prince Philip in a Rolls roll by. Karl eyeballs the ol' girl while I fumble with the iPhone (first generation phone, not speedy enough)(dang it all).
-Bus to Oxford Street (terrible road work near Piccadilly Circus, bus takes for-eh-ver)
-off at Selfridges for GUERILLA ICE CREAM! it's a new campaign for their whiz-bang inventive flavors like licorice (which is delicious!) and two kinds of Obamarama (choice between milk chocolate or white house white chocolate), cinnamon, rose water (ack!), etc. The tag line in the parlor is God Save the Cream. Cute, right?
Oh, did we mention, WE SAW THE QUEEN?!
-to Marks and Spencer then Sainsburys for McVities and Cadbury to bring home.
Back to flat, off to dinner, off to theater.
Home and packing.
It's been all kinds of wonderful and we're already looking forward to coming back.
in the meantime....CAN'T WAIT TO SEE CODY!
