parents week

It took weeks and weeks of planning, but the parents finally were able to make the journey from the land of cacti, across the pond, and into londontown. The week went by fast with daily touring, play watching, essay writing, train riding, and rain battling. Although they may not feel like they did much, in reality I saw more than I have all semester in London, so either I am pathetic, or we really got around.

took an off season tour of the Globe and saw the beautiful painted sky…

walked across the Millennium Bridge as I explained it significance to Harry Potter…

drove under Tower Bridge with a overly friendly Australian…

looked and walked up to the Tower of London, which I came to find out didn’t look at all like a tower…

mother continued with her love for digital photography…

and father learned the horrors of the tower…

then we got on a boat…

after a day of locking myself in my room to type out an essay, we took a train to visit the Queen at her lovely weekend getaway, Windsor Castle…

after a day running around in the british monsoon, we sat down for tea, which unfortunately included cultural food…

the final day we chose to ride the Eye, which always includes meeting the local street performers…

on the Eye, we waved comically to other air traveling tourists and we reached the height of over 400ft over London…

Beth kindly accompanied us on the journey…

in the end we actually ended up “seeing” all of London, a trip wonderfully concluded.
