lankford's in london day 2

today we loaded onto the big-double decker red bus for a tour of the city

after several stops we took quite a hike through some royal gardens
and more gardens
until we made it
over to the zoo for a special visit



a thankful heart we have to Mr A for helping us get behind the "bugs" scene
and for his friend who showed us some bug-gi-ness
this was over the top for our want to be scientist/vet briley (and brax was pumped too)


then back to the bus tour and...

guess where we are uncle rich?

just wanted a good pic. 
one not looking. one sneezing. geez. 


trafalgar square...amazing!

and onto
where?


yep...look kids big ben...



and
to
play
along
with
the chevy chase theme


this is where we lost the big red bus tour tickets and...
had to go to plan b of getting back
no big deal people
just try the tube, right?
normally, would work.yep.
but tonite, nope.
couple of major issues underground (including a person under the train? what?)
so along with thousands of other people,
many who know these tubes quite well,
we impressed ourselves with our navigating skills
and found a round-about way back for baths and bed

day 2
success!

truly was blown away by the architecture and beauty in this city...
incredible green space,
magnificent buildings...
even saw some more reminders of back home (H&M, GAP, Starbucks, etc)

oh, and no one was sick today. what a praise!


as i was checking this before "the official post",  i couldn't help but laugh at the pics. seriously, someone is goofing in every one. promise, i did get some good perfectly posed ones...but i guess i am not sharing those:)
