Carol and Doug started with a Starbucks in Ft Lauderdale
You already know how much fun it is to wait at the airport
Going to London on a 747, we were in the upper deck
Sorting out seats on the upper deck of a 747; it was more fun than it looks.
First we all had to fly into JFK in New York
Carol and Doug came from Ft Lauderdale, FL.
Megan came from Indianapolis, IN.
Loren left at 7:30 am from Los Angeles, CA.
The train station in London
The "Paddington" train station is nice, but below the ground and hard to get out of.
Paddington Station is near the center of London's transit system
Our first London taxi ride, Loren and Carol get the cushy seat while Megan and I got the Jump Seats facing the rear.
Loren and Megan get their Abbey Road "Zebra Crossing" photo, just like the Beatles
Carol and Doug get their Abbey Road photo
At Abbey Road crossing
We did have fun
Typical housing in the city; it is very pretty everywhere
Everywhere you go there are monuments to their history
Riding on the Hop on -Hop off bus
From the Hop on- Hop off bus tour, we saw much of London
Their are plenty of fountains and statues in London
Carnaby Street in London, the fashion center of the 60's and still today
Her Majestys Theatre still showing "Phantom of the Opera"
Tribute to the Women of WWII
One of two horse guards stand on station all day
Storefronts are on all the streets
Beautiful buildings on street after street
Big Ben, really was big, and very ornate
Queen Elizabeth, just one of many, around London; the pigeon likes her crown
Classic "Red Phone Booth"
The "Big Eye" ferris wheel
Each "pod" can carry 25 people
The "London Tower Bridge" still has an operational draw bridge that opens
Riding on the tour bus, in the upper open deck lets you see very well; yes we were hungry.
Just down the street we had "Fish and Chips" at a local Pub
This is a great sign, but we missed the Dungeon
After touring London we headed back for the Heathrow Express Train to the airport
