The first day, after sleeping in a bit & going to a local grocery store for pastries for breakfast, we went to find the closest pick-up for London's Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour! On our way, as the rain started to fall from the sky, we happened upon The Victoria & Albert Museum. Did you know that all museums in London are free of charge to the public?! We wandered in & had a wonderful time looking around at all of the sculptures, artifacts, & displays. There was an exhibit of Grace Kelly's dresses that I would have loved to see had there not been a 2 hour wait! Nevertheless, we waited out the rain in a lovely place.
|Have you ever seen such a thing? Trafalgar Square, my dears. I have lots of photos from here, but I'm fascinated by the giant ship in a bottle.|
|Another view of Trafalgar Square, complete with posing children! How quaint! :)|
|We had fun on the top of the bus, seeing all the sights with the wind in our hair! One of us ended up with lots of tangles!|
Here's a slideshow to show you some more of our pictures from day one in London! I hope I didn't put you into photo overload!
